Any Advice for my son's sleep issues?

My 2 1/2 year old son has never been a good sleeper & has never slept through the night.He goes to bed fine (foe bedtime & naps), however, he wakes up screaming from his nap 30-45 minutes after he falls asleep 6 out of 7 days a week.We have a daily schedule where he pretty much does the same thing each day with lots of play time.He wakes crying at night 2-3 times a week with the same characteristics.He screams, stares at the wall and cannot be comforted.He seems to be "out of it" and usually takes a while to come around.Sometimes he wakes with a gasp, sweats alot or has a stuffy nose.Our Dr. says his tonsils are a little enlarged & will watch them but for now wants to try melatonin.Any suggestions?

Sorry it took a while to reply your message.
You will need to take your son to a sleep doctor or a specialist for kids. The symptoms you mentioned here, I am not comfortable with.
As for melatonin, it is a good sleep inducer but you have to get the dosage right for kids.
Here is my page on melatonin supplements and melatonin for kids. If you have further questions, just post a comment here.
