Small child, suffering from abdominal pain, ankle pain, pain behind ears. Cure for symptoms?

My 6 yr old has had intermittent abdo pain for a couple of months. Now she s complaining of leg/ankle pain, so bad that it s affecting her ability to play sports. She has had episodes of fairly severe pain behind her knees a year or two ago - presumed to be growing pains - but no issue with these for about a year. What could this be?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Is there any swelling of the joints?

Does your child have any other complaints like a history of sore throat in the recent past?

Is the joint pain migrating from one joint to another?

Is there any redness of those joints?

Did you get any basic investigations done? Joint pains in children should be examined and investigated at the earliest possible.

Please reply in detail
