Unknown Illness

My brother in law has been sick since January. He does not know what is wrong because he is in prison and they have refused to treat him. It started with his stomach hurting and vomiting every time he ate. Now his stomach is still hurting daily, he has muscle spasms all over his body, bad headaches, and ringing in his ears. He feels like he will not make it out of prison (In August). He has even asked him Mom to purchase life insurance for him. He is only 31 years old and has lost about 30 pounds since January. We need answers because no one else will help him.

Thanks!

I am not a doctor but they should give him blood tests to check for cancer. Sorry, but he needs to be checked.

Thanks for replying.

The bad thing is that his Mom is trying her best to get the prison staff to check him but they won't do it. One minute they say they will get him to a doctor, the next minute they say he's lying and they aren't going to do anything. I have never in my life heard of anyone (even a prison) letting someone suffer for months without trying to get them help.
