Hi Saif,
Thank you for writing in and I am sorry to hear of the issues your brother is having.
However I am not a doctor, I only consult in matters of fitness relating to exercise and nutrition. This is in the capacity of a certified Fitness Trainer and Nutrition Specialist.
I am not able to, nor am I educated to diagnose or recommend treatment for any medical condition.
I suggest your brother see a licensed physician and let them examine him and perform any necessary tests.

What I can suggest your brother do is be sure he gets enough to eat since his work includes hard strenuous labor.
He should assure he eats a full breakfast containing protein, good carbs, and healthy fats before going to work. I always recommend people try to eat every 3-4 hours, at least 5 times a day. And he also needs to stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the day.
Any fruits or vegetables are fine to eat, assuming that he has no underlying digestion issues.

I wish I could have been of more help, but it would be irresponsible and unacceptable of me to make any type of medical determination. In fact, even a trained physician would still need to run tests to come to a conclusion. Medicine and even fitness and nutrition are far from exact sciences.

Best of luck to him.
