Hello....... Deep vein thrombosis or any other vascular anomaly could be the cause.. Or it can also be muscle cramp due to fatiguability, take him to general physician once. Electrolyte imbalance can cause muscle spasm sometime... Tell him to move his legs while sitting to establish blood circulation.
