Brief Answer: multifactorial cause Detailed Answer: Hi, In a 4 year old the cause for these vague pains may be many ! It many be due to viral infections and post Viral fevers this can happen It may be from simple vitamin or iron deficiency in an otherwise active child. It many be a reaction to a situation which she does not like!( like day care) She will need a blood test --- complete blood count and blood smear study to rule out other illnesses. Show her to a pediatrician. Good luck God bless Dr Uma
