Afraid of seizures or eye nuerological problems

I barely even know what I'm talking about. But it feels so weird and I'm desperately hoping somene can understand. I'm afraid of absence seizures and that I'm always having one. I havent looked up what they are because I just know I'll have a panic attack extended over the next like 2 weeks. My eyes feel weird dont even know how to describe it. Like my eyes aren't even apart of my own body. Like they are constntly feeling like they could roll back or just move wherever. They just feel weird in my head and I don't know how to describe it. They don't even feel like my eyes? I don't know. I'm so scared of it developing into someting nuerological, like epilepsy. Also afrid of epilepsy. Cameron Boyce is a good example. Dying in your sleep from epilepsy is rare but it obviously happened to Cameron. I just don't want tht issue. I feel like its neverending anxiety. This could be it or whatever.

I had absence seizures which I'm taking medication for. Up until I was diagnosed I had no symptoms apart from really bad memory, but when I went for a scan my electrical waves in my brain were all over the place. They aren't dangerous at all, its just the grand mal version that's bad because thats the one that makes you fall on the ground and seizure.
I highly doubt its absence seizures. Your eyes feeling funny is most likely in your head, and since you're focused on them you're more than likely imagining sensations that aren't there. And dying in your sleep is incredibly rare!!!!! But you don't have to worry about that since I'm very sure you don't have epilepsy :) just try to distract yourself and you should feel better

Anxiety makes you feel so many ways it’s crazy! And I’ve learned that from my own experience. You worrying about a situation such as you worrying about the absence seizures... your anxiety will bring on those symptoms because your mind is so focused on it. I constantly am worried about my head feeling funny all the time and since I’m constantly thinking about it and worrying my anxiety makes it 10x worse than it actually is. I could start thinking about cancer or a disease and I automatically start having symptoms connected to those. But it’s all the anxiety talking. Anxiety has so many physical symptoms it’s hard to believe it.
