He points to his right thigh and knee and says it hurts to walk. He started limping yesterday, and is still complaining about it this morning.
Is this normal? My husband thinks it's a growing pain.
I'm hyper sensitive to this, though, because I had a hip disease (Legg Calve Perthes) when I was a child that started when I was 4. I don't want to dismiss it if it's something serious as that, but I also don't want to subject him to an unnecessary Xray if it's a normal growing pain. How long should a growing pain last?
