Hae any of you ever dealt with this with your kids?  Last spring DS was in so much pain he was in a cast for 6 weeks.  Well, over the last week or so the pain has come back and the Alleve is not helping.  When I called the doc yesterday they said to put the cast back on for a couple weeks.  He also told me that since he just turned 14 we might have another 2 years of this to deal with until the bone fuse.  I know several people IRL that had their kids go through it once but never again have a flare up.  So, has anyone else had any repeats after the first diagnosis?

Yes my dd did. First time during softball season and again the following season. The sprints irritated it I guess. No problems since though.

Never hear of it.  It sounds alot like what my mom called growing pains.

My daughter had it when she was in 7th grade... First she wore a brace, then a boot, then a cast. The cast seemed to do the trick because then she really had to rest it. Afterwards it didn't hurt as much but she pulled a hamstring because she was overcompsenating for her foot. That took a long time to get better since she didn't truly stop running, etc. I would say by 10th grade she was back to 100%. She does have bad arches and wears insoles.

Much worse than growing pains. It's actually worse during growth spurts.
