ok so this may sound odd but i still use a baby monitor for my son cause i am a heavy sleeper. at 2am he woke up crying like he had been hurt by something. if i did not have the monitor i would not have heard him cry. i know that sounds bad but that is just how i sleep. when i went into his room he was shaking really bad and just screaming. i put him in our bed and noticed that he was kinda warm so i took his temp and it was 102.1 in the ear so i gave him a dose of childres tylonal. after about an hour and a half or so his fever went down so i went to put him back in his room and he would not go in at all he just freaked out. he kept saying that there was a bug on the floor that was "eating" him. i asked him were and he said on his foot. i looked at his foot and there was nothing there no sings of any bites but he just kept insisting that there was a bug. i was able to get him to go back in his room with a movie and go back to sleep but he as never done anything like this in the past and dont know why he would start now. could have have been bitten by something and there was no sign of it on his body that could have caused that high of a fever or could it just have been the fever making him a little off? any ideas of what i can do to help him out with this so it dont happen again. at least the waking up at night saying that there are bugs in his room.
