Default I have an 8-month-old kitten that has a problem of some kind with her back legs. One

While kittens do likely go through growth spurts, just like human children do, we do not see what we call "growing pains." Because the limp is localized to the back legs and it sounds like especially the right leg, I would be more suspicious of something else going on. Cats are so good at hiding their discomfort and kittens are often much too busy to stop to realize that they hurt. I would start by having your veterinarian do a full physical exam on her, paying special attention to the back legs (he or she should feel each bone and move each joint). From there an x-ray may be indicated and could give further information. It could be nothing more than a soft-tissue injury like a "sprained ankle" and perhaps your kitten is reinjuring herself because she isn't staying quiet enough but it is best to be sure there is nothing more serious.
