Hi and thanks for the query.
Can you please tell me where exactly the pain is? Which part of the leg?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

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.
