My son had night terrors when a toddler. I understand that is something to do with being in the first stage of very deep sleep, he would sit up screaming and staring about him but it was very difficult to wake him up.
Very scary to watch but usually of no lasting harm.
I still do this same but very rarely now. I can vaguely remember doing this when I was small.
These "terrors" bore no relation to any real trauma but it was like a dream you could not wake out of.
My DCs and now my DGS1, when they had naps, would sometimes wake up
in a foul mood very grumpy and really just needed a quiet cuddle until they were properly awake.
I can feel really dreadful if woken in the early hours of sleep.
