There is not enough video footage to think it is WHS.

Could be but there are so many other things it could be too. Can you give more details please. How fast did this come on? Any weight loss?

I've had one whs that came on gradually and one that was unconfirmed but most likely a stroke. He went from normal one day to almost unable to move the next day. Over the next few months, he improved to a certain point. He had no weight loss whatever.
