I know the look youre reffering to and I agree it's not funny at all.
It is as if they are in a room watching their family be murdered. Pure terror
Hope you can find the right answers for her too. It's so worrying to see.

Can you ask the gp or pead for a referral to a sleep specialist?
I've gone to the gp several times about my DS2s night terrors and they've been no help at all just keep telling me he will grow out of it.

I think I will.
Its hard to know what to do first. He has so many health issues that all cost a lot of money to have seen too
I think sleep specialist is a good idea.

Just a thought. Is he on medications for any of his health issues? If he is could the dreams be a side effect?

Epidermolisis bullossa has no medications only steroid creams that we dont use on him unless its an emergency (not in a couple years) He sometimes is on anti biotics for his infections and ventollin. That's all at this point because the psych we went to wasnt really helping/diagnosing or giving us any feedback whatsoever.

I also have night terrors. I used to think they were caused by beta blockers, but I don't take them anymore so there goes that theory!
I find them much worse when I'm overtired or stressed, and also when I have difficulty making sense of where I am, eg in a hotel room or new house.
I have often wondered if a night light would help... Because I'm so confused when I wake up and believe that things are happening in the room that simply aren't, I often don't snap out of it until I've turned on a light and seen for myself. Is it an option to leave a hall light on for him?

Yep, thats the look. Its horrible.
I have been told it's like a vicous circle. Anxiety and sleep issues get worse if they aren't sleeping properly.
I'm hoping this melatonin our paed wants her to try comes soon. He seems to think the it will help her stay asleep or at least have a deeper sleep.

We always leave their doors wide open with the hall light on. High levels of anxiety surely would have a lot to do with this? He's a very oversensitive anxious child.

my child gets nightmares when about to get sick. I also find ventolin and prednisone/steroids give her them as well.

Before he left for the doctors this morning he was feeling very sick and awful. He looked up at me and said.
'I wish there was no such thing as nightmares.'
