Lost on what to do with DS

My youngest is 11 and I really don't know what to do about this, now every night as he is going to sleep and every morning as he is waking he rocks in bed, this can go on for anything from half and hour to 3 hours a time, he's bust 3 beds from doing it due to the force at times from the rocking, he has also done this from being a baby. We initially thought that he would grow out of it but he never has and it's getting worse, for all you can hear at times is him banging with the rocking. Now he is not actually aware of himself doing it either, during the day he is constantly on the move, struggles to be quiet, to sit still, he's no volume level and gets louder and louder. School holidays are a nightmare cause he's like a bouncy ball that never stops. I'm absolutely mentally and physically knackered all the time in trying to keep him occupied yet nothing seems to burn his constant high energy. Any ideas anyone please.

I don't know what to suggest but didn't want to leave your post unanswered. My son has boundless energy we compare him to the durecell bunny just goes on and on and on! We ran laps of the rec near our house in all weathers, he races the dog round our garden, times himself four circuits of the rec. We do occasionally get some very strange looks,but he needs to do physical exercise. He plays football and outruns everyone else on the team will do double laps to warm up. I get exhausted just watching him some days!
Could your son be uses rocking to relax/unwind?

I've read a REALLY similar post a few years/months ago. Try searching back as the answers to that might help.

Ive read similar.

Also have similar experience with ds but not the rocking/movement.

Look up parasomnias and see if any of that rings a bell.
