I'm New Here, I advice

I'm new to the message board so excuse me if I haven't posted correctly. I have a son that will be five next month and I was wondering if he had autism since he was about 2 years old. I would ask him a question like how old are you and he would simply repeat the question. But as of the age of maybe 3 1/2 to 4 years of age his speech has improved tremendously. He learned his numbers and abc's by the time he was two. I don't know if it has anything to do with me reciting his abc's to as an infant to soothe him. By the time he was three he could count into well into the hundreds, knew his shapes, colors and sounds. He has always been very affectionate with me and his dad and certain members of the family. I notice he is more out going at home. Now at the age of almost five his speech has gotten much better, he talks to family members that he would'nt talk to in the past. He gives out kisses and hugs to extended family members, and loves to play with his cousins and the kids at daycare. My concern is mainly his speech. He asks for what he wants its just that his sentences are sometimes broken up or kind of out of order but this does not happen all the time. I mostly see a differnce in his behaviour when we take him to the doctor, he hates to be examined or he throws terrible temper tantrums when whe does not get what he wants. I have had two doctors that were not his doctors mention autism to be simply because he would not comply with the examination. But the doctors never asked me any of the key autism questions that are red flags, and I have been wondering about autism since. Please give me some insight??
