My daughter has been havig lower leg pain (mainly) since as back as I can remember. As soon as she could express herself.

Last night she was crying from the pain. She is now 13 years old and has gone through blood tests and X-rays with the diagnosis of "growing pains".

I don't believe growing pains could be so painful and lead her to cry. She is a serious girl, doing well in school and does not take things lightly or pretend about such things.

From a scale of one to ten she said the pain was a ten.
She tells me the pain comes and goes - it even went to her arm. It increases and decreases. Frequency of pain is about twice a week.

However this pain is most prevalent at night - rarely does she get it in the daytime.

What steps should I take to find out what is wrong with her?

Thank you
