My yds used to get them when he was about 5. He would get them in his legs around his knees. I would massage his legs and put a warm, wet towel on them. If they were really bad, I would give him children's ibuprofen along with doing the other things. He finally outgrew them. For now.

I try not to medicate unless absolutely necessary but if the pain is uncontrollable I will give pain meds. I was just wondering how everyone else handles it.

My oldest was in a lot of pain. My 2nd child's was pretty well managed with out meds, my daughter is just now having issues and seems to be in a lot of pain too. I assume it affects all kids differently.

A warm bath. Nothing much you can really do. Ibuprofen would help too.

I rub sore body parts until they fall asleep. For my oldest, it's usually his calves. Youngest son it's the back of his legs.

 Also,every body's pain tolerance is different. Motrin is probably a good idea-it deals with the pain but,it's also an anti inflammatory.Gl,hope she starts to feel beter soon.

Heat and tylenol

Usually it wakes them and is so painful they are nearly inconsolable. Also they are middle of the night so a bath is out. We use hot water bottles between sheet and blanket, some tylenol or motrin and hope it works quickly

Massage, hearing pads, I'll use pain reliever only if she has to go to school -so that she's not miserable.

I have Also been told that the more active they are the less growing pains they have
