DS is 14 months old and usually an okay sleeper. The past week he has just screamed. We have to rock him to sleep for hours to get him to nap, or drive around. At night it's worse. He will go down for a few hours, wake up and then literally cry for a minimum of 3-4 hrs. In our arms, in his cot, doesn't matter. Needless to say DH and I are not in a good place and this is taking over our lives. Nothing works. We have tried every painkiller under the sun, specially made teething elixir from the chemist. Surely this is more than teething.

I've heard they can be nasty and hits alot of babies during teething...
Maybe night terrors?
Is it constant screaming or intermittent?

if it was me I'd definitely be taking him to the doctors tomorrow first thing just to rule out there isn't anything wrong , an ear infection , virus , sore throat , a urinary tract infection, it could be anything really.
Hopefully that could shed some light?
It's so stressful when you have a screaming child for hours , all the best, I hope things improve ASAP and its nothing too serious and just teething. Xo

We were at the Dr on Thurs and apart from a little cold he is fine. Ears were clear. If it were a UTI wouldn't he screaming doing it during the day as well?
He eventually fell asleep in our bed after 3 hrs.

It's usually a big block in the middle of the night, anywhere between 3-5 hrs of crying and he can't be put down. Sometimes he seems like he has fallen asleep but as soon as you move he cries again.

I'd go back to dr and get ears checked again and ask for a referral to get his hearing checked. He may have had a previous ear infection and his ears are now blocked. Which can only be checked by testing the dr cannot see if he has glue ear. And they scream all night. Does he have reflux? Night terrors? There is definitely something wrong. Best wishes.

No reflex. It's not night terrors.
I just can't believe it can only be teething, it seems too extreme.
I think DH is going to try and get an appointment with a very good peadretic dr (who practices general) at his old family dr, as our local doctors are pretty crap.

He also does it it his nap as well, we have to rock to sleep until he stops crying which we have never had to do

Our DD did this at 18/19 mths and lasted a week. No cause was found and it just suddenly stopped.
It's heartbreaking when they cry like that. Big hugs to you and your DH.
