QUESTION: Does anyone get those growing pains in your legs still that we used to get when we were 14? I get them in my legs every once and a while and its incredibly painful. I doubt I am still growing as I am almost 22...

    1. I'm not exactly sure, the most similar pain I can compare it to is the growing pains of our youth days haha

  3. You still could be growing. Probably near the end portion though... but that pain sucks so much. Such a weird pain.

  4. I don't think I've ever experienced growing pains.. Then again, I'm only 5'1".

    Ever since I was a child though, my ankles would randomly feel sore at night. Still happens occasionally (once every other month). Who knows, maybe that's considered growing pains as well!

  5. Restless leg syndrome? Try taking Advil or Tylenol.

  6. It's pretty normal. Look up night leg cramps. Typically you just have to wait it out. Try stretching. I personally like using tiger balm or ping on

  7. Start going for a walk every night. Even for 5 or 10 minutes. It will help.

  8. Could be stress damage / fractures if you are really active or quite fat.

  9. I shot up like 6 inches first 2 years of university and felt these pains alot, males grow for a long time, especially if you had a delayed puberty

    1. If you are carrying extra weight that can be a cause.

      It can also be from not having enough muscle mass supporting the joint.
