Child with pain in the legs and ribs. What could be the reason?

My son has pain that comes and goes. I never know when he is goign to get it or not and it last for anywhere from a half hour to a couple hours. Today I could see he was in pain and he said the pain was in his legs to where they ached and hurt to where he couldnt stand. and a pain in his ribs. He shakes from the pain and I am not sure what I should be looking for. I wan tto take him to his family doctor on Monday but anything I should be looking for or trying in the meantime?

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
What is the age of your son?
Any history of trauma?
Any swelling or pain to touch in these areas?
This information is important to advise you further.
But for pain you can give Tylenol or Advil in prescribed dosage for the child in pediatric dose.
Consult your Pediatrician to look for the causes of pain and its management.
Hope I have answered your query.
