Big time Paper Eater, a problem?

My son loves to eat paper. He moves around the bed after his nap to find and destroy my magazines. He does this quite frequently and sometimes it looks like he's eaten a whole page, with bits scattered about. Yesterday he had a serious constipation episode with very little coming out. In the middle of the night he seemed to relive that episode. Today he is super lethargic, but happy, but not himself in any other respect. Not lively at all, just lazy. I'm worried that he has, in fact, consumed lots of paper and that it's not going anywhere.
Could the paper make him sick? Will it come out eventually? Should we ask a doctor?
