Hi

A pulled tendon or muscle can act like this.

Only a hands on exam will say what is likely.

And, if needed, an MRI.

Take your brother to an MD of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

These are experts [PM&R] in structural diagnosis, and the correct physical therapy that he probably needed.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Sorry the above will not let me edit.

If you tell me your city and state, I can find a good list of PM&R docs for you.

I am a double board certified US doctor.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
