Small child, difficulty walking, high CPK reading, autism. Treatment?

My 12 year old son couldn t walk today. His CPK reading was 3000. Six years ago he had the same problem and was admitted to Children s Hospital and they diagnosed the problem as caused by a virus. Having happened a second time, is a virus the likely cause still? Is his reading unusually high? He is mildly autistic, which I assume has no relevance to this problem. Any advice would be appreciated.
