He keeps waking up with cuts and bruises.

My DS9 that is.

At first he woke up a few weeks ago with deep cuts on his across a couple of his fingers at the base. They look like very deep scratches, but in perfectly straight lines. Didn't think anything of it, thought he had scratched himself in his sleep. He didn't even notice them until I pointed them out.

Since then he has woken up two of three times with pretty nasty looking scratches and bruises on his body, specifically his back.

Does anybody know if there is any kind of sleep disorder that could be causing this or something?

Thanks in advance.

Does he sleepwalk? My brother did when he was around that age. We'd find him in the most random places.

There are so many sleep disorders, I'm sure there could be something like this... I would assume it's connected to anxiety.

Take him to the doctor he may have a sleep disorder or there could be something in your house.

If something like that was going on with my kid I would sleep with them for a few nights. See what is going on. Sounds super scary I hope you figure it out before he gets too injured.

Not that I am aware of.

I would take him in to have his sleeping analyzed. Also, maybe check his mattress for any springs that may be poking out?

Night Terrors can cause this kind of stuff. Or sleep walking/doing things.
