Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My six year old girl is showing unusual behavior from the last few weeks. She has a problem in sleeping. She says that she could not sleep. Sometimes, she wakes up after two hours of sleep and starts crying. It will last for at least two hours, and then she again goes to sleep. She says her throat is dry and takes water again and again. Also, she snores. What is the reason?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand that you along with your child are going through tough time.

  1. The weight of your child is a little bit more than expected for that age. Encourage her to play outdoor games and do regular exercises.
  2. Avoid watching television or movies that have an impact on her just before going to bed.
  3. Snoring could be due to nose block or adenoids or overweight.
  4. If the problem is persistent, please consult a sleep disorder specialist for further evaluation and treatment. Take care of your child.
