My daughter (who has gluten intolerance) was failure to thrive from her issues with gluten. It doesn't sound far fetched that your daughter might have it. It might be good to get her tested before initiating a gluten free diet.

My daughter used to wake up at night crying with no reason behind it. She had open eyes but seemed "out of it" I could not get her to stop crying nor figure out what was wrong. Sometimes I had to get her up and out of the room to "wake her up" other times I just rub her back and she stops. Since going gluten-free this does not happen anymore. I am positive it had to do with gluten...either nightmares or just not feeling well but being unable to explain it.
My daughter had this same problem, she would wake up crying and screaming. I would try to calm her down and she would look at me like she didn't even know who I was or what was going on, it was heartbreaking to watch! I would just hold her and comfort her until she calmed down and went back to sleep. Doesn't happen when we're strict gluten free but if she gets glutened she'll start with the restless sleep again and wake up whining or crying.
