Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am glad you went for psychiatric assessment. If you have anxiety symptoms, you should talk to your GP doctor about treatment for your anxiety symptoms which could help. Medications like hydroxyzine could help you decrease your anxiety symptoms.
You can try a high protein and high vegetable diet to help your autism. There is some suggestion that a ketogenic diet can help with autism symptoms possibly.
You should approach a psychiatrist for this.
Since some signs of autism were found, and you were recommended further tests you should go through these tests.
Many behavioral therapies like CBT are available which will help you correct this and gain control over your life.
Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Other than waiting for the NHS appointment, your best resource would be to go for the further tests as advised by your private psychiatrist.
