Where do I begin?

My son is 14 years old, is 6'2(and growing!) and weighs less than 120#. He is diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and I have suspcions of Marfan's. He's very thin, long face, and phalanges. His legs are longer than his body, and he is able to pop his shoulder joints out...he says it doesnt hurt. Recently he has been complaining of numbness in his right shoulder joint, and ASKED to see a doctor about it.
My friends husband is 27, 7ft tall, who is also diagnosed with Marfans AND Asperger's.
Who do we see first? And is there any links between Autism and Marfans?
