We were chalking it up to “growing pains” but now if seems inconsistent with that diagnosis Any help would be appreciated. Her discomfort/pain breaks my heart! EllaDMomWe are also experiencing this same problem with our daughter! She is almost 3 years old and every few months she will complain of pain behind her knee that is painful enough that she limps or falls. This started again yesterday and is much worse. She has been crying quite a bit about it, and when she walks she limps. We are taking her to her pediatrician today, I just hope they can help us find out whats going on.
