Night Hallucinations/Constipation

My little girl is 3.6 and for the last month she has woken in the night and seems to be hallucinating - seeing bugs, shapes and other things - she appears to be wide awake but is absolutely terrified. This has happened on about 3 or 4 occasions. Is this night tremors/terrors - is this common? It is quite scarey to watch as she literally jumps with fear. She has also been suffering with constipation on and off for the last few weeks - could it be linked? After being on lactulose she has now been prescribed Movelat which I am hoping will eliviate this problem - she went 4 times yesterday bless her but again last night we had the hallucinating??!!?? Any advice gratefully recieved as I am very worried.

my dd has done this too, seeing flies on her pilow and under her covers, has happened about 7 or 8 times,shes 4 and a half, started when she was about 2 and half. dont think its related to constipation, ive just put it down to an active mind and a fear of bugs, ive been saying postive things about flies/bugs when out in the garden, hasnt happened in a while now, fingers crossed, it is terrifing to see, hope everything works out well for you smile
