My son had his first attack of what I am now sure is PF on a plane on a NIGHT flight aged about 3. Was screaming and writhing in agony and clutching at his bottom, but we were completely mystified as to what was happening. Also not very popular on the flight.. Then he woke from sleep at 12.30 the other night, again crying out in obvious extreme pain, could only tell us he had a \"sore bottom\" but was once again completely wild with the pain, leaping in and out of bed. So upsetting to watch and not be able to do anything. Another attack last evening, crying and shouting for half an hour, clutching himself. Gave him ibuprofen mostly to feel like I was doing something to help, but pain had passed before the painkiller could really have kicked in. So having read your comments, I am reassured that it is 'nothing sinister' but so sad to discover there is no real cure and that he is likely to have more attacks as he grows up. He is too young to be suffering like this and not even able to understand why. I ended up crying with him in frustration (good parenting - not!). Would love to hear from other parents. Is it very unusual in childhood?
