Help from Experienced Moms Please!

Ok, so I feel like I have a newborn child again! Let me premise this by saying my child has been a excellent sleeper since he was 3 months old. Most mothers hate me for how easy he is in this department. However, there were a couple of nights last week that Asher did not sleep well, and I was constantly getting up with him. I even took him to the doctor thinking he had an ear infection. She said he was fine.
Well, he did it again last night. He woke up every hour between 10 and 5 this morning, and I'm exhausted! This is just a strange age for us. He's even regressed to using his pacifiers again. We were only giving them at bedtime. Now he wants them anytime he's home!
Nothing in our lives has changed except that all his main buddies were moved up in class simply by luck of the draw between 4-6 weeks ago. We finally insisted he be moved up hoping that would help some of his behaviors (which started around the time his classmates left him). It has helped some. He's actually excited to go to school again.
I don't get the sleep thing though. Any ideas?
