Question: About a month ago (July 2011) my son had woken up crying his head off and rubbing his knees repeatedly… After about 5 min. of me being in tears in fear of what was going on with my baby and ready to run to the ER… he finally was able to say his knees hurt bad.. and so i gave him tylenol and rubbed his legs with lotion and he smiled hugging me..
So i figured my baby was growing up and going thru a growth spurt where ur joints hurts… Now what seems its been two weeks now my husband and i have heard my son crying/ screaming as i in fear of something running from his bed to the living room. The other night we opened our bedroom room door bc we heard him whimpering in fear almost like he was running for his life from the kitchen thru the living room back to his room (our bedroom door is to the left of his) it scared the crap out of us of what the heck he was running from!I used to talk and walk in my sleep as a child but i never ran in fear of something! Tonight i so happened to be awake in the living room and i saw it all!!! I heard him whimpering getting up from his bed which i figured prob afraid he wasn’t going to make it to the restroom in time but before i knew it i see him eyes wide open as in fear running towards the living room!!! Bc i was on the sofa and i saw his reaction i ran to him n held him tight then he put his head on me n closed his eyes!Ive tried getting him to stay awake n talk to me but he says ‘nothing happened.. Nothing scared him!” when i ask if he was running from something or if something scared him!! My bedroom is right next to his. Why doesn’t he just go lay/ sneak in bed with us instead he runs in fear past our bed to the living room!! Why???
