Pain in outer thigh

My mother is 66 years old and from last few weeks having pain in outer side of the thigh in both legs. We consulted an ortho specialist who prescribed medicines but the pain has not reduced / stopped. Someone told me to consult a Neurologist saying it may be linked to nervous system.
Should I consult a neurologist?
