My three year old's night terrors

My son has had very mild night terrors since he was , started at about age two. Recently we moved and he started having them worse. Now it's to the point of them lasting all night. There is no comforting him while this happens because hes not really awake. I just want advice on things I can do to try to help them stop or at least slow down.

Talk with your pediatrician. When mine were that age, and had night terrors and sleepwalking, I had to gently wake them before putting them back to bed. Once fully awake, they could snap out of it and go back to sleep.
It could be anxiety from the move causing the upswing. My eldest would have bouts whenever he was anxious about an upcoming event or had other things causing him stress.
