My son is 13 years old and plays on 2 soccer teams. Sometimes while running, his legs will stiffen slowing him down dramatically. It lasts between 5 and 10 seconds and he has no pain associated with it. No other muscels are affected. 3 years ago it only happened about once a week and we thought it was due to not warming up enough before exercise but now it happens every day. We have an appointment with a neurologist but untill late December. Has anyone had this type of experience?

  • It may be a good idea to have them try and rule out stiff person syndrome

  • I have a 13 year old son who also plays multiple sports including soccer and has the same symptoms. Wondering if the situation was solved and what the diagnosis/remedy was. Appreciate your reply.
