I had those mysterious "growing pains" in my right leg as a child, 45 years ago. Since it's been so long, I really hope that we've developed enough medical expertise to find a better answer. I was so frustrated by that non-answer, as were my parents. I wasn't ever offered any kind of pain med, so just that is an improvement!
