here recently my premie, has been having bad dreams i think thats what is happening,she screams bloody murder in her sleep, and thrashes around almost like a temper tantrum in her sleep, i am at a loss, i finally had her sleeping threw the night, and now im not getting any sleep again its to the point where i have almost fallen asleep driving with her in the car with me, i have spoken to her doctor and she says not to worry she will grow out of it but im already so exhausted from work and her being constantly sick any suggestions?

How old is your LO, and has the doctor actually examined her for an ear infection or any other kind of illness or medical problem like reflux? If there isn't any obvious medical cause for the bad sleep, my first guess would be teething. I know my DS will sometimes wake up screaming multiple times a night when he is cutting a tooth. He is also just a wild and crazy sleeper in general, so he constantly tosses and turns in his sleep at night.
