Grandson woke up limping

My 5 yr old grandson woke up and has been limping for 3 weeks now, and has had every test except the MRI, CT scan....they say blood work is okay.  By reading your blogs these test even if done don't/or sometimes are not reliable.  He is going to Orthopedic doctor tues....
We are all so upset... he also has ONH (optic nerve hisplacia) & autism....could this be affecting him too?
