Poor sleep hygiene: A careful evaluation of the quality and duration of sleep is necessary to evaluate the reason for your son's symptoms. An uncontrolled respiratory problem or non physiologic sleep may play a role. Overall health will need to be evaluated for a more concrete answer to your question. www.healthtap.com/dr-nnebe.
