hi

thanks for writing to health care magic

i think your brother is having seizures or some seizure mimic

rolling up of eye ball and shaking of the body with loss of consciousness suggests seizures

CT SCAN and EEG may help in diagnosing the condition along with basic blood investigations like complete blood counts, blood sugar and serum calcium level............

an antiepileptic may have to be prescribed after investigations

hope this helps
take care
