Chronic leg pain, wondering what it could be...

I'm a 15 yo female and I have been suffering from leg pain for quite a while. (More than 5 years.) Recently through, I've noticed that my chronic leg pain, which usually affected my right calf, has worsened over time. In these past two or three years, the pain has been affecting my knee and entire right leg more aggressively where moving my leg or walking is painful. I can even feel it up to my foot and just below my hip. The pain has always been unbearable (feels similar to aching but more like dull) and I'm feeling more desperate. I've brought it up to my doctor multiple times but every time its been dismissed as 'growing pains', which really feels like a slap in the face. I will bring it up again this year, but I really can't handle the pain anymore. I appricate your thoughts.
