21 month old wake up screaming during night

My 21 month old son wakes up 4 to 5 times during the night screaming profusely. Many nights it''s as if he''s still asleep with his eyes open - he will kick and hit me for a while and then get into my arms. When he''s calm I can put him down and he sleeps again. We put in grommets when he was 11 months and recently replaced the right ear again, but still he screams. I tried sleeping with him, and putting him in our room, but this has not made a difference. He does not ask for a bottle when he wakes. Please advise - I am tired!
