1)My 7 year old daughter has had repeated nightly head bouncing since she was 15-18 month old. In her sleep, she lifts from the waist and slams face down into the bed. This can last from 5-15 minutes and she does it multiple times during the night. She does not appear to be awake and does not respond. Two pharmacists that we know have seen this behavior and are of the opinion that it almost has a seizure quality to it. Her doctor at 18 months said that kids neuro systems are just immature, so I assumed she would grow out of it. When she didn't by age 4, I asked about it and got a shoulder shrug. Her current doctor ( a different one) recently said he didn't know anything that could cause it. Riding in the car, she will bounce backward intensely. She is awake then. 2)She has off and on had cycles of sleepwalking since age 3 which I basically ignored (except to extra secure doors and staiways during cycles) because my brother was a notorious sleepwalker when we were kids. But in March 1999, she began nightly sleep terror incidents. She would get up 1/2-1 1/2 hours after falling asleep screaming, knocking things over, running into doors or walls, couldn't be comforted, wasn't awake, didn't remember incident in the morning. She doesn't move her limbs normally during those episodes. Her movements remind me of my autistic nephew. Her doctor said to put her to bed earlier and not let her eat or drink anything past 6:00pm. It didn't help and caused her alot of unhappiness. She was already getting 10hrs sleep and woke up an hour earlier if she fell asleep an hour earlier. She finally quit the nightly terrors in early to mid-August. Now she's up about 3 times a week with mild whimpering and after we get her to go to the toilet, she will go back to bed. We have her use the restroom before she goes to bed and does not drink an unusual amount of liquid. She doesn't awake during these episodes either. I'm afraid to go to bed before an 1 1/2 after she falls asleep, because although these episodes aren't as intense as the earlier ones, she is confused and wanders unless directed to the bathroom. 3)During the sleep terror cycle, she experienced incidents of perceiving everything as being very small, including me as she was falling asleep. This terrified her and she was afraid to go to bed. Her doctor told me that hallucinations happen when people are falling asleep and gave the same advice as problem 2, with no results. My son convinced her to remove the night light so she wouldn't see anything and not be afraid. She's afraid of the dark, but agreed because she's more afraid of seeing things small. That went away after 3 weeks. But I'm concerned because my brother tells me he has had the same problem since childhood (except he sees things as big) and he doesn't have to be falling asleep. He has had episodes after waking up while laying in bed talking to his wife. So, I'm afraid these episodes may reoccur with my daughter. 4)Since she was small, she has perceived things as being uncomfortably hot that are not. At a younger, she wouldn't take a bath unless it was ice cold and ate food stone cold. This has improved, but she still considers teps that I consider lukewarm to be uncomfortably hot. I consider all this abnormal and worrisome. The doctors just shrug. Should I pursue this and if so, with who? Sorry this is so long. She seems normal and happy when she's up and about, and is an above average student. Thank you. If nothing else, you could ease my mind.
