Pain or discomfort that does not get better

Why It Happens: 
Most injured children have pain, at least at first. Pain cannot always be managed completely, but doctors do their best to get it under control as soon as possible.
Is This a Problem?: 
Your child may tell you he’s in pain, or you might see the effects of pain in his behavior. Pain can make it harder to sleep and harder to concentrate. Follow up may be needed if your child’s pain is getting worse or if it interferes with getting a good night’s sleep or paying attention in school.
