he's sitting on the sofa with a hot water bottle at this very moment. I'm just mentioning it so anyone who doubts the existence of growing pains can stop doubting!

sad for your ds. Hope he's ok.

I had dreadful pains in my legs at about the same age and the dr said they were growing pains. Turns out they were caused by my leg bones twisting as they grew. I've now got knees that face in very strange directions!

So if it continues for a while please get him checked out smile
