Help my son.

by Sue

My son wakes up screaming at night and wont go back to sleep. No matter what i do he seems so scared and wont go back. Can you help me?

Answer

Thank you for the question. The first thing that comes to my head is sleep terror. But nothing is certain until proper diagnosis and testing is done. Have you taken him to a doctor, i mean a sleep doctor or a child physiologist.

I have not written on sleep terrors and how to cope with it, but in the coming weeks i will do so.

If you have taken him to a doctor and the test have been i would love to hear from you. You could just post a comment here, for the benefit of everyone.

Please do this as soon as possible as health is very important.
