I took my 3 year old to the doctor a couple of days ago because he has been complaining about back pain,not just a whimper here and there,he actually gets to the point where you can't even touch him to try and comfort him part of the time without him screaming in pain! The doctor sent him for a couple of x-rays to see if he can see anything going on-and to check for scoliosis(spelling).I am so worried about him! Just wondering if anyone else has had a young child with back pain?? At first I thought it was just growing pains-but it has been going on for like 3 wks. now. I give him tylenol/motrin to help ease the pain,but it just doesn't seem right for such a young child to have such pain...Answer Question

Sounds like an MRI is in order here. I seriously doubt this much pain is normal for a 3 y.o and I would be VERY leary of any Dr that wants to put your child on pain medications. A back specialist may also be needed and I DONT mean a chiropractor. I mean a neurologist or a Dr who specializes in back pain that has a real MD medical license.
