My daughter is 5 and is a fit healthy girl. But recently she has been saying her legs are tired and usually about once a week she is waking and crying saying her legs and feet hurt her. Last night she actually said 'help me, they really hurt'.
I am not sure if it is just pins and needles or growing pains. My mum recommended I ask to see a foot specialist as she thinks my daughher is flat footed and may need arches in her shoes. I always buy either Clarks or Johnsons children's shoes and not once has anyone mentioned her feet.
It could be an attention seeking thing, but my daughter is generally a confident girl and if something is bothering her, she will say.
I don't want to come across as a paranoid mum, but it is starting to concern me somewhat.
Any comments gratefully received ;0)
