What causes pain in muscles in legs?

My 13 year old son had a third ventriculostomy (due to a glioma on the brain stem - he had hydrocephalus) five days ago and since then he complains of pain in the muscles behind his upper legs (right below the buttox) making it diffucult to walk upright. Is this a result of the 3rd V?

Hello,

As first-line management, you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief. It is unlikely to be due to ventriculostomy. If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated. An MRI scan can be considered for further assessment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,

My both legs pain unbearably. Mostly in night time. When I go to bed. It pains in such a way that I need to tie my legs with a cotton twine. I have also observed that the pain continues throughout the day followed by night. Sometimes I asked my friend (weight 75 kg) to press my legs with their legs. It is generally a muscle pain. Left leg pains quite often whereas right leg pains sometimes.
