Q.

no proper sleep

Hi Doc
Something starnge has been happening with my 22month old son in the past 4 days. He cries a lot in his sleep, this is different from when he had night terrors, every second hour he screams and forever tosses and turns. The past 2 days he''s had diarhea, i''m even thinking maybe he has cramps in the stomach. When is the second set of molars supposed to come?
Thank you Doc

It is very possible that your son has a gastro infection with a parasite called 'Giardia'. This causes a lot of tummy pain and cramps as you describe here. It would be best to ask your doctor or clinic sister to see if he has this parasite infection and to treat it correctly with Flagyl.
