    This could be a symptom of lung cancer. Is he on any medication? Certain medications cause this. Welbutrin is one of them. I don't want to scare you, but has he seen a doctor? Does he ever sweat a lot with out the night terrors?

    Source(s): Seriously TAKE HIM TO THE DOCTOR'S, THIS STUFF WILL NOT JUST GO AWAY. THERE IS AN UNDERLYING CAUSE. these people telling you to hug him, give him water, talk to him, it will not make it better. Maybe for a short few minutes but there is something else wrong with him. Neurological problems, certain cancers, medications. TAKE HIM before you find out too late. It's better to be safe than sorry.

    now not a full expert but it depends on the terror. my best friend had them and when i tried to wake him he would turn on me still in his dream. he got over it though when he faced the problem fully awake. it did take time but he is over it now!

    Source(s): my best friend had them!
