In my opinion he has intermittent claudications he can try circulatory exercise in the form of beurgers exercise ( elevate leg do ankle pump 15 times if he can then drop it for 15 seconds )
Or he can go for medical treatment like lyrica or gabapentin.
However i recommend investigation if he has a back problem (disc or spondylitis )
Also a dopplar to make sure there is no thrombosis

Good Luck

Night cramps or pain can be due to electrolyte imbalance and low potassium levels..
Plenty of water drinking and bananas can help in this..
Other possibilities may be arterial insufficiency (clauducation)
..
In this case the lower leg is colder than thighs..
If so then you should try Burger’s exercises..
Thanks

hi
this pain can be due to nerve inflammation or calcium ,vitamin deficiency.
get his blood checked .
applying local gel with compression bandage may help.
anti inflammatory and methycobal with calcium tablets should provide relief.
thanks
