I've made a GP appointment, just looking for more info. Obvious candidate is growing pain but in his knee to the point of limping? No obvious fall or injury and it has been going on for a while, thanks.

My friends ds suffered from this & turns out he is very flat footed. Now wears special insoles inside his shoes to raise his feet up & doesn't complain as much about the pains in his legs.

Thanks, we used to think his right leg/knee was a bit turned in but it's his left knee he's complaining about now. It's his right leg that he looks like he's tentative on when limping though.

Could he be hypermobile?

Definitely get his hips checked.
