Ok So my 17 month baby girl has been having random "episodes" of screaming and crying and thrashing around. We have kind of blown it of as night terrors as it usually happens while she is asleep. She has her eyes open but doesnt seem to act like she knows where she is at and if we try to touch her, talk to her, or comfort her in any way she gets worse. Well tonight she was awake and I was getting her situated to sit on my bed to snuggle before bed and she started "pitching a fit". She hasn't felt well and has had an ear infection since 26 September (today is 10-10) and already went through a round of Amoxicillin and is now on Augmentin. She was awake but fussy. So I proceeded to lie down with her thiking that she just didnt feel well then all of a sudden she went from fussy to sitting up and throwing herself back onto the bed, scratch herself and myself and her father. She was trying to hit her head on the head board (but of course I didnt let her). She looked like she wasn't aware of what she was doing but she was "awake". We just have no idea as to what to think...View Thread
