Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I would insist you to click an image of the exact location with a finger pointing to the location of the pain. The pain could be due to growing pain. I would be able to confirm after having a look. Giving paracetamol or acetaminophen when needed should help in alleviating the pain. I would also insist you to mention the body weight so that I can suggest the dose. It might also be advisable to go for a vitamin D and calcium supplementation.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
