Cramps in the leg may occur from too much calcium in the body, usually via excessive supplementation. Magnesium Oil is excellent transdermally for fast relief of muscle cramping, magnesium citrate or mag malate taken internally is also advised for muscle relaxation.

I agree tail bone/leg pain sounds like sciatica. Never had it so don't know of a help or cure.
For calf muscle cramps - try more magnesium & a zinc tablet.
I used to get calf cramps all the time but not for years now. One 400 or 500mg Magnesium a day will cure it.
Also some foods containing potassium.

thanks for the info.
Well, i guess we might see this week when he gets the results back from the doctor on the MRI.
If it is a pinched nerve, what can be done besides stretching and possibly getting massages? There's a school of massage around here, $30 or so for close to an hour, I think....by students. Alot of times they will try new techniques they are working on on you, so I've heard from my brother, I've never gone.
Perhaps chiropractor? He went, but it didn't do anything for him. Maybe just try a different one? My wife used to know a really good one down in Galveston, don't know if he still practices.
It could be the periformis muscle.. I've had that and it feels like siatica... as the muscle is swollen or knotted and pressing on the nerve. Many chiropractors cannot do much for this as the origin is in the muscle not the bone structure.. I found relief with physical therapy..
The mri will tell you if there is an issue with the bones and the nerve or not.. doesn't sound like it though.
