Hi my son is 5 he not very often is a sleepwalker/sleeptalker and tonight as i went to check on him while he was sleeping i noticed his legs were shaking uncontrollably. I of coarse got scared and tried to wake him. Kinda hard because he was in a deep sleep but he did wake up and his body was jittery for a couple seconds then he jumped up and said he had to go pee. When he got back to bed he fellback asleep with no shaking or jitters. He has no fever cold etc. Should i be worried he has a dr appt tues for a flu shot should i mention it then?. Thanks for any advice as of rightnow hes sound asleep.

Could he have been cold? Having a bad dream? Or maybe it just had something to do with him needing to pee?

No definately not cold, and he usually doesnt do this when having to go pee while asleep. Bad dream probably not because he didnt seem like he was having a bad dream. Could have to do with needing to pee though. Thank u

It could just be one of those odd things.   He could have restless leg syndrome which is no big deal.  My dd is a flopper , she will travel her whole bed while she sleeps.

 Sure, I would absolutely mention it. But I wouldnt let it stress you until then. Keep an eye on him and see if he does it again. Maybe it was a one time thing, maybe there is a pattern. Maybe he was running in his dream. Maybe it was because he had to pee. I often dream that I have to pee when I have to go IRL. Whatever wakes you up, LOL.

I would bring it up to the Dr and keep an eye on him between now and then.  I hope the best for you both!
