as far as i know , lanzol is an antigastritis medicine- lanzoprazole. so please check the spelling of the drug once more and type the generic name if posible written on the label. the pain may be growing pains , and the low vit d levels can be solved by supplementing wid oral calcium combined wid oral vit d, the childs height is also short by 6 to 7 cms foe age.
