Talking Re: It started at 16

I'm not quite sure if this is the same or not, but I'm going to tell you my story and see if it has some related meaning. I have an 11 yr old son w/ds. He was happy, outgoing, loving, loved being the center of attention. He used to play video games, and just plain thrived in life. About 6-8 wks ago he started to change. I'm not say that it was overnight, but it might as well have been. He just completely did a 180. He still enjoys his TV, but everything else I can't seem to get a reaction out of him. It's almost like he has no drive at all. He quit running and jumping, or riding his bike. He quit his video games. At school, he started to regress badly. I took him to the doctor and they tested for everything under the sun.(Diabetes, Thyroid, ALL, Celiac, etc....) They did MRI, EEG and a spinal tap. All tests came back normal. Now he is having a relapse with the bathroom issues. I have him in pull ups due to the number of "accidents" that he has. He also has a hard time going to sleep at night. I'm really at a loss of what to do next. I've searched the internet for answers and can't seem to find any. Does this sound the same as your situation?
