Onomatopoeia for screaming

Hello! I am currently writing a story and I don't know what onomatopoeia to use for screaming. I don't want to use ahhh or aaiie type of sounds because it is a scene where the character is screaming not from pain, but from a nightmare. This is giving me a such a hard time... I will give a little bit of the writing so you get an idea what I'm talking about.

"_______(the onomatopoeia)!" sweat was rolling down my back. I was panting roughly.

Thank you in advance! :)
