I want to thank all of you for your suggestions. Even the fellow who somewhat harshly told me to "get my poor kid to a doctor" My doctor has continuously told me the symptoms are either unrelated or age appropriate. Well I went back and pushed and pushed. She sent us to a pediatrician who put him through a battery of test and we got the result on Friday of a intestinal biopsy he has Celiacs Disease. As hard as it is to deal with the disease the relief of having a diagnosis after 4years is wonderful.
Thanks again

For instance, Celiac disease often goes along with functional b12 deficiency. Come on over and look at the list of symtoms, though not at all complete for children.http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=9948&page=238
