Thanks for posting your query.
Hard muscle on the thigh could be due to electrolyte imbalance or a muscle strain or sprain. Some blood tests and a physical examination under the guidance of your physician will help in the diagnosis.
Meanwhile you can ask her to have electrolyte XXXXXXX fluid like Gatorade and avoid bearing weight on the leg. Doing hot fomentation will also help.
Having loose stools after hearing a shocking news is due to irritable bowel due to psychological reasons. Prevention of such episodes is easier to avoid symptoms.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
