Teen Growing pains?
My 15 yr old son, very thin, has been complaining of pains in his legs for quite some time, the latest is that he is sore to the touch on his shin, just above the ankle, for no apparent reason. His bones also seem to have a slight protrusion to the outside (just under the knee) which one can feel. When are aches (seemingly in the bone) just growing pains (if there really is such a thing!) and when does it warrant further investigation?
