Growing pains or Restless Leg Syndrome?

August 11, 2014

Are achy legs keeping your child awake at night? He or she may have growing pains that cause achy muscles in many preschoolers. The pain usually occurs in the late afternoon or evenings and is described as a throbbing, achy muscle pain that may cause your child to wake up in the middle of the night. It is important not to confuse this with Restless Leg Syndrome. 

People that suffer with Restless Leg Syndrome often describe an electrical, pins and needles sensation with some degree of numbness. This sensation can occur in any body part; the most cited location is legs, followed by arms. After a sudden hard jerk or leg fling, a sufferer will feel immediate relief but it will happen numerous times throughout the night.

How is it diagnosed? A simple blood check and visit to your GP is enough to identify potential causes of leg cramping and pains. A serum ferritin blood test will measure of iron stores within the body, a low count could be an indicator. Medication and supplements would be discussed after diagnosis.
