My almost 5 year gets them. He has for the last 2 years. Complains of his legs hurting at bed time or wakes up crying. It's Not every night, it's More like every 3 months for 2-3 nights in a row. Tylenol helps sometimes.

Mayra Thomas it doesn't Help all the time, I wish it did. Massages help some nights also.

My oldest has had them off and on since he was 5. Every few months. I massage the area. Usually lower legs and ankle area. If that's Not enough epsom salt bath. I try not to use meds unless absolutely needed.

My 5 yo son has had them on and off for the last couple years. Sometimes One leg sometimes Both. If no obvious Bruising Or explanation You can guess it's Growing pains. Almost always in the legs and many times knee pain. Our doctor Confirmed This for us. He even had them the last few days.

My 5 yo daughter gets them. She stretches her legs on the floor before bed. Motrin helps her too!
