muscle problem

the doctor's haven't found any thing so i came here to see if i can find some answers. my cousin (he's 21) recently noticed his left calf muscle weakening and deteriorating a bit. he can't run and has a bit of a limp but now it has gone to his right leg as well. he hasn't told me anything else about it so that's all the information i can give.

Not enough information to even guess but if there is true wasting of muscle it needs to be explained. Has he had an EMG? This is a very good way to identify and distinguish between a nerve and a muscle problem (this is a very important distinction to make). This will tell the docs which way to look for causes. Fill us in with more information, maybe someone on this board can help further...
