Certainly. I have no idea which threads they were, but if you check my previous posts, it will come up. It hasn't been too long ago.
Briefly, my daugher has a variety of special needs including sensory issues and anxiety (diagnosed -- not just a toddler stage). She was waking up 3-4 times per night, screaming hysterically for approximately 20 minutes each time. We had a sort of dance going on where we'd try to help her, she'd get more hysterical, she'd ask for help, we'd try to help, she'd get more hysterical, etc, etc. She had no self-soothe abilities from birth, and she could often only accept help from us once she got past the vomiting stage of her episode. Nothing helped -- we tried diet, aromatherapy, Rescue Remedy, valerian, etc, etc. Homeopathy was the answer. Within 2 months (monthly appointments), she went from having episodes 3-4 times a *night* to having episodes 3-4 times a *month*.
I should point out that my older boy did have a phase of nightmares and night terrors. It only lasted a couple of weeks with a few recurrences every couple of months. My daughter's situation was much different.
Let me know if I can answer anymore questions.
