Kids with nightmares? Anxiety?
December 7, 2017 7:50am CST
My middle daughter suffers from night terrors badly. I'm not sure what causes it. She suffers a lot from general anxiety. :( She has severe allergies. Is also being treated for asthma. A lot of this anxiety started after her last allergy test ( I had to pin her down while they jammed 50+ needles in her back ). :( it was awful for her and I. I couldn't even lay down and hold her since I was pregnant at the time. Aside from comforting her at night, what can I do? I mean I still comfort her it just doesn't seem enough. Some things we try to do in the day to relieve stress/ take her mind off feeling blue (she throws up a lot)... Are drawing, painting, crafts, yoga, / prayer/ meditation... Have you ever experienced this as a child? What made you feel better? Do your kids experience night terrors or anxiety issues? What helps?

All of my sons had night terrors. I have done some research on it and some of the causes are being over tired, being too hot and having sugar too close to bed time. With my boys it was being too warm the most since they were chunky babies and they were always warm-even in winter! I'm sorry for what your daughter is dealing with and you as well. =(

I have never experienced this, and our son never did either. I am so sorry your daughter has to deal with this.
