Leg pain

My son is 3 and a half years old. He is giving complains about leg pain during early mornings. If the pain is severe, I give him pain relief ointment and paracetamol syrup. He goes to sleep. I have not taken to the doctor yet. Can anybody explain if this normal at this age or something serious?

Most likely it is growing pains. Especially if he is having a growth spurt. My son always has them when he is about to grow, during growth, and for a short time after. He started having a lot of pain around 2 years. Bring your son to the doctor just to ensure it is nothing more. Don't just listen to us mothers that are not doctors, and not suitable to diagnose a child that is not ours and have never seen.
