Mr,. Gonzales, I think you should take your child to a doctor and get to the bottom of his pain. He could have a biomechanical problem. Custom made orthotic shoe inserts may help. I have orthotics and my pain has improved. Good luck

I use the Corbo golf ball m[@]ager by Corbo Industries. It is amazing for relieving the aches in pains, not only in my legs, but my back and neck also.

I second that for the Corbo golf ball m[@]ager. It targets the pressure points and gets rid of the knots and pains in my legs from running.

My leg pain started twenty years ago gradually getting worse. A year ago I tore some muscles in my lower back. Instead of slowly healing my hips began to burn and throb like my legs. Not good. The pain keeps me up all night or until I finally p[@] out. For some reason the pain starts to get worse each evening around 6 pm. I've tried acupuncture, chiro, m[@]age, yoga, stretching, Epsom salts, extra water plus every drug and antidepressant made. The docs look at me like I'm nuts because all the medical tests come up normal. I've tried capsicum rubs too. So, next I'll try the vit d3, vinegar, and electrolytes. Sun always makes it feel better as I can't wait for each winter to end. Anyway hang in there all you pain sufferers. Some day we'll figure this out. For now one Percocet and one sleeping pill for me each night. Plus I think I'll cut out sugar for awhile. Cheers
