Pain In Thigh

Aching or throbbing pain in the thighs and calves in infants is due to growing pain. It usually occurs at night which might result in disturbed sleep and affects both legs. Overuse of the leg muscles during daytime is the most common cause of growing pain. Rubbing the legs, using a heating pad, stretching exercises, and taking pain-relieving medications help relieve growing pain.
