Pain in the legs at night

Hi Doctor my child is just 5 years old and the whole day he fine but at night during sleep he feels severe pain in his legs so kindly suggest me why this is happening and what to do. I have consulted some of the general physicians during the last two months they use to say this may happen due to calcium deficiency.
