Well, maybe I've been reading too much on anxiety, but if you go down the lists that the anxiety books give of children who are anxious and/or prone to anxiety disorder, he's got almost every single characteristic. (sorry don't have the books in front of me, so I can't give the list).
The thing that's bothering me now is the nightmares at night-- and his inability to tell us what's wrong. He also has some 'performance' anxiety -- he will not talk in group situations at all. And he's not wanting to be in rooms by himself. If he watches TV, someone has to be in the basement with him, for example.
