My son has always been a problem sleeper but recently he's begun to wake up in the middle of the night and after naps..screaming and crying inconsolably. He doesn't want to be put down but he doesn't seem to want to be held either. It takes about 30 mins to an hour to calm him. He gets so upset that he can't breathe. We've tried everything but nothing seems to help, it more or less has to run it's course so to speak. It's very scary. Is this normal? Once he calms down, he's a regular happy toddler again, that makes it more confusing.
We've gone as far as pack him up and take him to the hospital in the middle of the night. He cried the entire way there but once we pulled into the parking lot, he stopped. He was all smiles and ready to hang out. We of course, couldn't take him in the emergency room then. We'd be labeled hypochondriacs for sure. Our pediatrician doesn't really seem as though she has any ideas. Please help.
