Patient : I have a seriously ill brother. He can't walk, talk evethough before he could do this. His fingers are bending,his legs very thin and back is as if, it were a hunch back. The hospital we took him to said he has stiffman syndrome,others said it was a fall as a child that resulted in nerve problems. He is not responding to medication but seems to be getting worst. Please help us diagnose this ailment. Thank you
