: hello, my 8 1/2 year old son has cf and was diagnosed when he was between 5 & 6 months old. As most of you already know sometimes our kids have ailments that are not expalined by their doctors. So my question for you is do any of your children have leg aches? Jesse (my son) sometimes has leg aches so bad that he has to take tylenol when going to bed and just lays their crying until the tylenol takes effect. In one of the cf books I got from the doc. it mentioned leg aches but the cf doc. hadnt heard complaints of it before and he didnt seem to put it with the ussual cf problems. I just wanted to know if anyone else has noticed this before. I do know that it can be part of growing up but my two older non-cf boys did not have this kind of pain.
: Thank You, Tina

Tina,
I haven't had experience with the leg pains but maybe it's a potassium deficiency? I think you can get leg cramps, etc. from lack of potassium. I read one of your messages to another mother regarding developmental delay and you had said Jesse had serious problems with absorption. Maybe he has a problem absorbing potassium.

I am just a mother throwing out a suggestion. My son is 9 months old tomorrow and we have been very lucky with his case. I don't have experience with alot of CF issues and that is why I read this message board - to learn what to look for.

Good luck with Jesse. I hope he gets better soon. I hope if the leg cramps are CF related you'll post a note.

Thanks!
