Welcome to HCM.
Read your prob, this is not uncommon prob, may be this due to calcium deficency. so you should get blood test for serum calcium n start calcium suppliments as per your doc advise. along with it you should give him banana, custurd apple ,milk .

if he does not have any other behaviour disorder like temper tantrums or headbanging etc then ther is no need to worry.just ensure that he is getting adequate n unfragmented sleep atleast 10 hrs in the night n 1-2 hrs nap in daytime.also make sure he is not wearing too tight clothes during sleep.sleep problems r common in children n improve with age.
