It's quite common for the eyes to be open in night terrors. I had them from about 6 to 5 or 7 then they just went away. Having said that, the eyes don't have to be open. What you describe though does sound very similar to what my parents described.
Usually it's about certain regions of the brain not sleeping while others are, which is why they are acting awake but aren't lucid. I've read waking them an hour or two into the sleep cycle can help.

Yep. The sleep specialist (and by this I mean a specific Dr who works at the children's hospital. ..Not one of those people who come to teach you how to sleep).... told me night terrors nearly always occur in the first part of the night. In the first few hours of sleep.

I did consider worms and I've checked her for them during an episode of crying and also checked her nappies but can't see anything.
I also thought about intolerances as she was CMPI as a baby, but her diet has been consistent for 2yrs now without any issues.

Sounds like night terrors to me. My DS1 had them at between about 2 & 3 yrs old and DS2 has had them too. Both were just like you described but eyes open.

Have you figured out what might be going on Cue?

It seems to have settled for now, I'm thinking it must be night terrors as it seems to fit.
