Unable to move leg after over stretching, pain in inner thigh. Neurological problem?

My friend just recently went to climb back in his bed and over stretched his left leg. he already went to the doctor and was told it might be a possible herniated disc or a pinched nerve in his hip. after his recent incident, he was unable to move his leg without the assistance of his hands and had pain on the inner thigh. After 10-15 minutes he was able to walk on it again and no longer feels discomfort in his leg. could this be a possible neurological occurrence?

Thanks for writing to us.
The cause of pain and inability to move the leg for sometime is likely to be due to a nerve root compression at the level of spinal cord. He needs to have a bed rest and avoid lifting any weights or any abnormal positions of the back.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
