Question: My son is 5 years old, sometimes when he wakes up and he is not really awake. His eyes are open but he starts shaking and chattering his teeth like he is cold. When I talk to him he will follow my voice but acts like he can’t see me. Again his eyes are wide open. When I talk to him he hollers for mom and dad and says he is scared, when you ask him what he is scared of he can’t really answer. He does sometimes talk about seeing lights. He is very scared and his heart is racing. I try to wake him shake him gently, clap his hands together, take him pee but nothing stops these episodes until he wakes up all the way and then he is fine, in fact he doesn’t remember anything once he snaps out of it. Any one else have child that does this or any suggestions?
