It would be interesting to see what he is doing while he is sleeping...This really is a curious thing. I take it that the doctor is also puzzled by this. Does your son voice that he is having problems (my son at that age with asthma would say that he was " 'eezing" when he was having an attack). Gosh, I wonder if it is hyperventilation syndrome especially if lung tests come back normal. But at 4, it is hard to get a kiddo to do them. I wish I could help more...maybe push for more testing by a specialist ( a pediatric pulmonologist) to find some answers. Sunny
