Hi. My son has been waking up every night at exactly 10:35pm, after about an hour and a half or so of sleep... screaming and running back and forth as if something is chasing him down. When I try to wake him up, he screams and hits me as if he doesn't even know it's me. I have to shake him a bit and yell and turn his face to me and hug him before he realizes it's me. Then he gets freaked out and says I have to go back to bed now... when I talk to him in the morning about it, he doesn't even remember it happening and says what am I talking about! i'm really scared for him but don't know what to do or what is happening.
It hasn't been happening recently but he does scream a bit at night and he wakes up all the time. He says he needs to go to the bathroom like 5 times a night. He doesn't even drink anything! I don't understand!
He also has ADHD, hyperactivity type and I don't think he gets enough sleep as it is. Last night he didn't sleep until 2 am! Oh, and he's 7 years old. It's driving me nuts!!! Any thoughts?
