Thank you for posting your query on ATD.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You can take analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. You can get your vitamin D test and if found low you can take supplements of vitamin D 3. There is possibility of correction of limb length difference by limb lengthening operation such as illizarov and monorail technique .Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
