Arm stiffness/tight forearm muscle

by Tommy
(Brentwood, TN USA)

My grandson showed me that he couldn't fully straighten on or his arms the other night and when I examined it the forearm muscles were tense and would not relax. He's 14 and not a real big guy and has been working out at school a lot. Of course he has done a lot of curls so I'm wondering if this is something that will pass with rest and hot water soaking or should he see a doctor ASAP?
