I believe my 6 yr old is having a growth spurt and is complaining of his shins hurting. He used to wake up in the night w/ horrible pain in this area every 2 months (on the dot) between ages 2 1/2 - 3 1/2. He hasn't complained about it in a long time. He's recently shot up in height and matured in his face, etc. Today he is complaining of this pain. Is there anything extra I can give him to help support him through these spurts? Magnesium or potassium? And if so, how much for a 6 yr old.
I've never found anything great for growing pains. Magnesium may work - you can give about 200 mg to a child that age. I don't know the potassium dose though, but I've heard some good reports on that from some patients.
