Sorry for the late response, I have not been checking this because everything was fine. We took him to a children's hospital where he saw an orthopedic surgeon. They didn't even do a blood test just had him do some exercises. My son has not complained of calf pain in some time, but he did complain about it more than once over a period of about six months to a year. The doctor just said that his calcium was low and that he also need to be taking some vitamins, like Flintstones. I was very worried, but he is so active that I just didn't see how he could have MD and he is already getting close to being 7. I hope your son is okay, my son would act the way your son does, sometimes he just wouldn't want to walk. I think by 6 or 7 if a kid is fairly active, that MD is no longer a possibility as far as the ones that strike in childhood.View Thread
