My 14 year old daughter (who is very tall and slim) has been suffering on and of with hip/knee pains for a couple of months now. It started with her left hip and knee, some days it wasn't to bad, other days she would be in a lot of pain and limping. She was also having "spasms" where she would be walking along, and her leg would just seize up leaving her unable to move for a few minutes. I made a gp appointment for her (it was a locum doctor) who said it was probably growing pains and sent her away with ibuprofen. They did not help! Then she started complaining of worse pain in the right hip and knee and limping more. One night last week she was up all night with the pain, and in the morning she was limping badly (and walking on her tip toe) Her right hip also seemed "twisted". Her leg and foot were turned inwards and she was unable to straighten it. I called her gp again who asked me to take her straight down. Her gp examined her, and sent us straight to the hospital to have x-rays of her hips done. I called up yesterday and was told her x-rays were normal. I am now at a loss as what to do! I feel I don't just want to leave it because her x-ray was normal. It just does not seem normal for a young healthy girl to suffer pain like this!
