If this were one of my children, after 3 years, I would definitely look for some professional help. I'm assuming that you have already tried every imaginable solution. Is your bedroom on a different floor? Is that something you can change? Is that something that would help?

It is so important for your son to get enough sleep. But if there are underlying anxiety issues, those really need to be treated. Sleeping with him is only a band-aid - a very necessary band-aid.
