Growing pains.

Did I read somewhere that growing pains were connected with RA?? I remember having awful pains years ago in my legs. My mum went with me to the doctors only to be told I have growing pains. I used to be reduced to tears..did anyone else suffer as a child??

    I also had horrible growing pains as a child in my legs and back!! And put on big giant calcium tabs by the Dr. This is the first I’ve heard of this theory. Before i was diagnosed i remember telling my Dr it felt similar to those growing pains.
