Patient :I am a 14 year old female and I have had lower back pains as well as horrible leg pains starting in my knees ranging all the way down to my feet ever since I was about 3. I have went to doctors for this but i have often been diagnosed with growing pains but they have not gotten better. The pains in my legs become extremely unbearable during my period and I am often unable to walk during these times. I am also a vegetarian and I refuse to eat any meat but I do get plenty of protein from other sources. Any help is appreciated because the pain just keeps getting worse. Thank you.
