I am a 75 year old woman that have night terrors. Last night I had this dream that I was chasing bad people out of my house and I fell out of bed before I woke up. I hit my head and hurt my tail bone. I have no stress or other problems. This have been going on for 6 months. Sylvia Merrill

I have a 17 month old daughter. She woke up this morning stumbling. She can t put any pressure on her right leg or she falls over. I took her to the ER and they did an xray on her hip. They didn t find anything wrong. We got home and she walked around for a while at my sister s like nothing was wrong. I put her in her carseat and brought her home and she could walk again. We are supposed to go out of town and I don t want to leave home if there is a big problem.
