Brief Answer:
Needs details of fever.

Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic surgeon.
I have read the question carefully and I presume that he had high fever during last 9 months only.
Fever lasting 9 months at this age may damage certain organs particularly brain( as brain needs maximum oxygen supply), so the fact that he is unable to walk long without support indicated weakness in the legs.
If heart is good ,than one part is Ok.
Please let me know the details of fever and diagnosis as to the cause of fever. CPK 22000 indicates muscle disorder.
Please let me know the details , for me to be of any further help.
Thanks
