My daughter was born with a meningocele on the crown of her head. It was removed at 2 months and all seemed to be progressing well with her until a few weeks ago. She now wakes up in much discomfort and you can feel the bones in her legs (can't tell if it's ankles, knees or leg bones) making popping sounds and you can feel the bones moving. It is really hard to locate where it is coming from exactly. I took her to an urgent care facility (we were far from home when it began) and they felt it but had no clue what it was...and told me it wasn't an urgent care matter - see her pediatrician. We took her to the pediatrician and of course - it didn't happen while there. They also had no idea. We are going to see an osteopath in a few weeks, but in the meanwhile, has anyone ever heard of something like this?? Could this be yet another congenital issue, or just growing pains?? Anything would be helpful at this point.
Thanks in advance :)
