1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly

If the night terrors are not remembered, they could be related to seizure activity.
Lip smaking is not uncommon during sleep but could be related to seizure activity as well. Usually during sleep seizure activity, there is movement and posturing of one side of the body.
