Small child, weakness in left leg, unable to put weight on leg. Cure for weakness?

My 2.3yr old son has today started some weakness in his left leg.. It is buckling under him when he tries to step up a small step on it. I don t think it s causing any pain though.. But just started this morning when I noticed he was looking a little clumsy. Like the leg just gives way a little every now and then, but he was laughing at it. He Hasn t wanted to run around this morning which is not like him
