    Please Read: Transient Synovitis

    Hi There,

    I had posted a thread Transient Synovitis.However i did not receive any comments on it.I guess thats coz most of us are unfamiliar with it.I was unaware of it myself till a couple of days.
    I had taken my 23 monthold son to the park where he played and ran to his hearts content came home had a good night sleep.But the next morning when he got up from bed he could not walk well.My husband and i was shocked.he was literally limping.Every few steps he wud fall of or grip something for support.
    He din seem to be in anypain at all. We took him to his doc who said everythn is fine. We went on to show 2 more doctors coz we were completely shattered.

    This condition that lasts for 2-5 days is called transient synovitis. It occurs in some children anytime from birth to 10yrs.there is however nothn to fear abt.
    Today is the 5th day and my son is back to normal by the grace of good god.

    If at all anyone comes across this please don panic as its alright. It will be in a few days.its also called growth pain and some children feel pain unlike mine.

    I hope this thread has helped

    cheers

    That is very scary that happened to your son. You must have been so worried. I'm glad he is fine now.

    I have never heard of the condition before. Thank you for making us aware of it.

    One of D's playgroup buddies also suffered leg pains for 4-5 days. Sounds like it was TS.

    Thanks engee for sharing.

    Dear Engee,

    Wow, it sounds pretty scary. I am sure I'd freak out but thanks for sharing your story. I hope your son is back in the pink of health.

    Do you know what causes it? Are there any tell tale signs before they lose energy on their limbs?

    Dear Moms,

    Yes it is indeed very scary and frankly we both haven't come out of the shock yet.
    There were absolutely no signs of it.He was happy and playing.Inspite of the limping he was eager to play and run as he had no pain.
    Some docs say that it can happen if the child has fallen or perhaps hurt the particular leg.
    I really dono what caused it but i pray and thank God for his mercy.
