3 month old with Night Terrors?

Is it possible for my 3 month old to have night terrors? For the past week she wakes up at 4 am wailing, totally inconsolable, frantic and unable to latch. This had normally been a time when she would eat, but now I have to take her out into the hall, turn on the light and talk to her to wake her up and calm her down so she'll eat. Does anyone have experience with this? Someone also mentioned growing pains as a possibility.

Ds started waking up screaming around 2mos. It sounded like he was in great pain! I would have to turn on more lights, walk around, rub his back and talk gently but loud enough he could hear me. One time thinking it might be night terrors I left him alone like 'they' say youre suppose to. It just got worse and worse so I picked him up 2mos later he's still doing it but not as much and it doesnt take quite so much to soothe him. I have no idea whats going on but since its getting better I hope it ends soon. Sorry Im not much help

Does not quite sound like night terrors, and I have not heard of them that young.
Although, my first child had his first night terror at 8 months old, which is also very unusual. He had a few more throughout his second year, and around 2 1/2 he had one at nap time at daycare!

To me it almost sounds like a pain or fright reaction. With night terrors, children do not actually respond to you/stimuli. They are still stuck between stages of sleep.
