Sometimes at night I see huge spiders or bugs that aren't there. I have to physically move away and I eventually calm down. I am 25f. Night terrors?

In brief: Imaginary insects

My professional recommendation is that you consult with a psychiatrist, not a psychologist, as soon as possible.
You need to be totally open regards your past medical history, including prescription or non prescription drug use, childhood psychological trauma, wether you feel depressed, anxious in general, and get to the "root" of your imaginary fears. This may involve psychoanalysis and meds.

In brief: Possible narcolepsy

It doesn't sound like night terrors.
You may be having hypnagogic hallucinations, a possible narcolepsy symptom. They can also occur, however in people who are sleep-deprived, or by certain medications.
