Overcoming Frequent Delirium In Children?
Hi dokI want to ask about my son who often and even almost every time he sleeps delirious, even though sometimes like confused people do not know we are his parents even sometimes suddenly sat down screaming and kicking, I was confused and very worried what if until he grew up like that, can it be cured? And do you have to see a doctor? If yes, please consult a neurologist or general practitioner?
Adinda does not need to worry too much, because if someone is delirious actually does not always mean that the person is experiencing a health problem, even it is estimated that almost half of children aged 3-10 years experience delirium during sleep, delirium can occur when someone falls asleep in a stage called the phase sleep "rapid eye movement" (REM). So when someone is in the sleep phase can be seen movements or sounds to the words that come out.
In general delirious habits are not dangerous, but so delirious habits are often associated with conditions such as sleep apnea, nightmares, stressful thoughts, lack of sleep or are experiencing pain such as fever for example.
As a preliminary treatment, try to get the child to sleep about 8 hours a day, if Adinda has entered school age, try to spend more time together with him so he can better understand the difficulties faced at school or his social environment. Children should also not consume food-drinks that contain caffeine such as coffee, tea, chocolate, and cola in large quantities.
And don't hesitate to have your child checked by a pediatrician if the giga's complaints are disturbing or even walking around in a sleep state so that further evaluation can be carried out and appropriate treatment is given.
