night terrors 2 YO

My 2 years old cries and screams in his sleep almost every night around 12/1 am.
I think he has nightmares or night terrors.
Is there a homeopathic remedy that may help him have a better, more peaceful sleep?
Thanks

scribe how he react after he wake up?(explain this maximum u can) 
he screams and cries with tears. When I pick him up he doesn't calm down, he tries to get away. When my husband pick him up and hugs him tight he calms down faster.
The other night while crying he said mickey mouse, not sure why, he loves mickey mouse. I only let him watch limited TV and when I turn it off he cries, maybe he dreamt about switching off the TV while he was watching Mickey Mouse?

2 What other physical sufferings did he have in his body? 
He recently had a stomach virus and ended with an IV at the ER. but he used to have terrors way before that as well.

3-. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?(any thing in past which has scared him even or any disease etc) 
He has been having them for a long time, maybe a year and a half, he stopped for a while then now it came back. Can not connect them to any specific event.

4- did he get fever before when all this started or it started after any particular medication for a minor or major disease. 
No

5-Did keeping the light on or playing some music reduces these symptoms ? 
Not really, we got him a night light but he still has the terrors. Music I didn't try.

6- Describe his general mental set up? is he Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc. 
He is caring, sweet but sometimes gets frustrated so he starts yelling and crying if I don't give him what he wants. He knows exactly what he likes and wants. He usually requires little sleep comparing to other kids his age. When he has a project (which can be building a Lego house) he works hard and fast to complete it.
He recently started crying when I drop him off at the day care, he doesn't want me to leave him there although he was fine at the beginning.
When he gets mad or offended it lasts very little then he is back happy playing.

7-How is his thirst and hunger : Less, Normal or excessive Excessive? 
He drinks a good quantity of water/day, has always been the same.
Eat normally, used to eat better now I have to bribe him.

8-How do you think he is different from others, if at all? 
I am his mother so I think he is really smart, sweet, caring and what makes him different is the amount of sleep he needs, not much comparing to other kids his age. He is also extremely attentive, he pays attention to everything and remembers it.

9. What medications have been given for this diseases and do he have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication? 
Echinacea.
Kali mur (i think, for mucus / cough).
They gave him a Tina use a at the ER when he had the stomach virus and an IV

10. What major diseases are running in your family? 
Diabetes, the big c


11- Ask his mother what she think reason of this and and try to ask ur baby what he feel what happen he wake up,why he wake up ,did he see a nightmare, did he see something standing in front of him,did he hear any voice etc
?
I am not sure why this happens, I think maybe because I tell him no sometimes and he cries and yells and stumps his feet. He is a troublemaker always touching things he shouldn't touch, he barely plays with his toys he loves playing with whatever is NOT a toy. The more dangerous the better.
He can not explain himself well yet but in the morning he is fine I doubt he remembers his terror.

Thanks

IN a old case like this i have describe the cause of this type of fear.
If u want u can read about it in
http://abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/452760/


In this case i am suggesting the same medicine which i did in the old case.Give him one dose(4-6pills) of baryta phos 12c in empty stomach everyday before dinner . Do not let him eat and drink anything 15 min before and after taking the medicine.
report back after three days of taking medicine.

take care

Blue sky-

I think you are in usa, this remedy will not be
easy to find.

You can Google and call Hahnemann Pharmacy in Northern
California and tell them you want Baryta phos 12c in
#3 pills, and you want a 8 grams for the amount -
And that they were prescribed for you by a homeopath
in India.

Or you can order from Helios Homeopathic UK, ( online) it will
take 2 weeks to arrive.
