Hello Victoria,

Sorry about this symptom. Please get her checked by a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and get tests like MRI done for any bone/joint anomaly. Till then please ask her to avoid heavy sports, jumping etc and take a calcium, vitamin D supplement daily. Night pains may be treated with tylenol.

Good luck to her.
