    Default What could it be? Growing pains?

    My 5 year old DD occasionally complains that the top of her feet (along the inside from the big toe to almost her ankle) are hurting. Sometimes it is one foot, sometimes both. There is no change in the way they look but sometimes they feel a bit warmer than usual. We have no clue what it is. It will wake her up from a dead sleep.

    Has anyone's child experienced anything like this? Any ideas of what it could be?

    Could it be her shoes even though most of the time this happens is when she is sleeping... like the pain wakes her up? She never complains about her feet hurting while she is wearing her shoes.

    I really am clueless on this one... I have no idea what she is experiencing.

    Yeah, I don't know...it was just a thought. The only other thing I can think of is lack of calcium--I get leg cramps that wake me up if I don't get enough calcium.

    Sounds like the 'growing pains' I used to get in the middle of the night. My parents would have me walk on the cold kitchen floor which seemed to help for some reason.

    Putting a cold cloth or ice on her feet seems to help too so maybe it is growing pains.

    Hmmm. I don't know what it is either, but sometimes Nathan complains of having hot feet when the rest of him is cool - no socks on or blankets or anything, just bare, hot feet. Very odd. I'm no help! Haha.

    That is so weird. I wonder if it is the same thing? Maybe we can have our two children chat about their feet to see if they can figure it out - LOL!!!
