Severe leg pain at nights

Hi All, My child is 5 years old. Everything is fine. But sometimes in night he suffers from severe leg pain all of the sudden. I don't know what's wrong. We had consulted with 2-3 General Physicians. But nothing worked out. They told us that their might be some calcium deficiency. Looking for suggestions. Thanks
