Need help..(not urgent)

Ds2 has woke up several times (from nap or nighttime sleep) just frantically crying. When I get to him (or sometimes I'm laying right with him), he's not at all awake...but he's either sitting or laying and just crying his little head off. In addition to crying, he's shaking..tremendously. Not like shaking from the cry..but like...not a violent shake, but more than just crying or being cold (and he's usually covered up & warm). Also, sometimes I'll go and check on him..and he's not awake or crying, but he's asleep and shaking the same way. Oh, also..it's really hard to get him out of it. I can't just rub his arm and say his name..it's hard.

Does this sound normal? It freaks me out! It freaks dh out too, but nobody else really seems to react much when I tell/ask.

Talk to your ped, sounds like night terrors and hopefully he will outgrow it. My friends son had them for about five years starting around 2 or so and outgrew them around 7 or 8. My mother also has suffered from them but didn't get them until an adult.

That has happened with DD where she wakes up and is immediately crying and unresponsive. She will usually go back to sleep within a few minutes. She's 2 1/2 and it started around 2. She hasn't had it happen lately though. I would definately get it checked out though for some peace of mind.

My ds had that starting at about 18 months. It was definetly night terrors. At the time we lived in an apartment building. His night terrors were so horrible that one of my neighbors threatened to call the police on me until she witnessed him having one of his terrors. Luckily he out grew them within a year but it was a very rough year. If I tried to comfort him, he'd not even realize I was there and would kick and hit me screaming even louder!

I hope that your lo outgrows them quickly but if it's concerning you that much then definetly consult your doc.
