Hello My brother has been sitting home for nearly 8


Q: Hello. My brother has been sitting home for nearly 8 months. He says his muscles get pulled down from stomach if he walks. So he barely walk or stand up. He doesn't want to talk to anyone and easily get agitated if asked about his condition. My family has been begging him to see doctor but he refuses and says he will fix himself. He uses a stick to press on muscles and he tries to keep them in "correct position" with his hands.

Symptoms:  Muscle stiffness
