What analgesia would it be appropriate to advise Mum to give to her son?
Simple analgesia such as paracetamol or Ibuprofen. Dosage schedules can be obtained on the British National Formulary (BNF) for children.
Leg massaging can also be helpful.
Growing pains are often predictable after times of being physically active. Sometimes a warm bath in the evening and analgesia before bedtime, after especially physically active days, can help to prevent night waking.
Advice for parents to manage growing pains is available.
