Last night my daughter (who will be 4 in August) woke crying grabbing at one of her legs and foot, we have had problems with growing pains before but this time it was different. No amount of massaging or hot water bottles would relieve it, she cried on and off all night. She would fall asleep and then wake again within the hour crying again. She kept complaining that her foot was cold so I put her socks on her and she kept banging it against the bed as well. I am thinking that she most probably had pins and needles in her foot and leg but I'm not sure if it could be a underlying problem...is it normal to have pins and needles for such a long time? I will be taking her to the doctor to have it checked out, but just curious if anyone else has experienced this with there kids.
