I think my son is dying

My son was diagnosed with cerebral palsy around 2 years old.. He turns 23 in March. He doesn't talk or walk. He needs help with everything. Lately he has become more and more inactive. He doesn't move as much or make any noise. He looks like he's dying I don't know what to do. The doctors don't know what to look for. Please help I don't want to lose my son

i don't think his diagnosis is correct. First cerebral palsy is a childhood issue, it doesn't affect 21 years old adult. Secondly it is not so rapidly progressive.

Never lose your hope. There are many medical centers who are helpful with cerebra palsy and best example of cerebral palsy treatment center is Trishla Foundation. This foundation gives new life more than 10000 children affected with cerebral palsy, orthopedic, limb deformity, orthopedic and other physical disability problems. The life expectancy of cerebral palsy is between 30 to 70 depending upon condition but exactly in most cases it not true. If child or cerebral palsy patient get proper care and treatment from parents and doctor then life of cerebral palsy can improve.
