He was seen by gp but since last week he walks worst .he don't have any pain but he don't want to stretch he's leg.

Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. Dr. Yogindra

Please kindly send short video. A detailed neurologic examination by pediatric neurologist like muscle tone, jerks of the affected limb may give a diagnosis.

Particularly try to ascertain if he also has any numbness of affected leg like reaction to touch, hot or cold object, pinprick etc.

Carrick can feel hes leg and he has normal reactions when I touch the leg in any part...hip , knee or foot. I do not have a video from doctor as he had a check at the gp practice by lifting , touching rolling hes leg.

Jerks are by tapping on tendons at knee, ankle with rubber hammer. Other reflex is Babinski's. Please ask about these with your GP. If any joint has restriction of stretching, MRI test may be ordered.
