Lee, it might be due to poor circulation or something pressing on the nerves (eg. in his neck) that supply the affected areas, diabetes, vitamin B deficiency and a host of less common problems. He can try taking an anti-inflammatory for a couple of days, but if it doesn’t work the best would be to see his doctor.
