It was walking there since last day so I decided to bring it in.
Now it's walking in circles in the same spot and occasionally stops and turns it's head several times. It hasn't opened his wings even once yet and is pooping while running in circles.
It has a greenish neck too. No visible injuries or hurt marks.

What can I do to help the poor bird

I found the symptoms to be the same, but I visited the nearest vet and he says it's because of vitamin E deficiency.
(I'm not sure of this)
He recommended wheat germ oil and vitamin E injections

Vitamin E deficiency can cause infertility, so not exactly relevant here :)

Had the vet said vitamin B, then maybe that could help. Lack of the B its can cause neurological issues, with the neck most usually (only from my observations) being arched back until the head touches the back.

If it is PMV, however, the only 'treatment' is to keep isolated and fed and watered (may need help to feed) for minimum 6 weeks. No meds are appropriate for the condition, being viral.

Sounds like PMV to me.

Lots of hand feeding and care is required.

Make sure to isolate the infected pigeon from other birds (if any).

There is no guarantee, but I have had pigeons recover fully from PMV; given they receive lots of care.

I wish you good luck.
