So sorry to hear about your son.  My Mom has similar problems and finally after 6 months of suffering was diagnosed with Acute Cerebellar Ataxia... also known as Cerebellitis (a rare infection of the Cerebellum).  It can be diagnosed by a spinal tap.  For my Mom, they treated her with high doses of steroids as the infection caused swelling of her Cerebellum.  Did any of the MRI's show swelling?  There's not much out there on this disease and its difficult to diagnose, but in case studies I've read about, patients can make full recovery.  Hope this helps...
