... awake scared shaking and afraid, this is the second time, and have just realised its after I've givin him Panadol befor bed, just wondering if this could be a side affect? This also happened a couple of years ago after he had a dose of pain stop after he'd had his adenoids out. Just a bit concerned, thought they were night trimmers but am unsure now
I actually have some experience with this. This sounds like Night Terrors. I actually had them myself when I was between the ages of 5 and 9. And I used to babysit a little girl when I was a teenager who had the same thing. About 2-4 hours after she would fall asleep, she would just start screaming and her eyes would be wide open, she would be shaking, and talking and she would say that the black frogs were getting her!! She would have vairations of the same dream every time. The doctor told her mom that she was having night terrors and they are actually bad dreams that are more real than most. Like I said I had them too. I grew out of them and so did the little girl that I sat for but from what I know , they can lead to things like sleepwalking and stuff like that so keep an eye on your child as he get's older. Keep in mind that I am not a medical professional, I am just telling you what I expirenced with this and this may not even be what is going on with your son. I would talk to your son's doctor about this if it is bothering you and it keeps happening and maybe see about having a sleep study done on him to see what is going on.
I hope this helps you some. Take care, and I hope your little guy get's sweet dreams soon. :)
