It is very difficult for me to be able to advise you about your son's sleep problem without being able to examine him.He seems to having nightmares. This is usually a passing phase and no treatment is usually required. Time heals this problem. It is unlikely that you will find any obvious anxiety causing event to explain his restless sleep pattern.
