is there a name for this? please help

I randomly get these, I guess bouts, of something, but I don't know what it is. It's unprovoked, and what happens is my mind suddenly goes blank and then I get a feeling of emptiness.
Then my mind makes up a fake memory, either in detail or extremely vague then I realise the memory isn't real and I then get a feeling of extreme low mood.
While this is happening, I can feel my heart pounding but I'm not sure if it's going fast or slow, and I feel like I'm going to throw up. Sometimes, I collapse, but I'm still conscious and awake. I feel like I'm not real afterwards, and while it's happening I feel like the feeling is never going to go away. I don't know how long they last, as I have no concept of time while it's happening, but I do know that they're coming more often and more severely.
I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this or if this is something common that I just didn't realise (lol) but it's been really stressing me out and I don't know what to do because I can't describe it to anyone.

Epilepsy maybe. Here is some info from the Health Communities website - Epilepsy-Seizures...

"Symptoms of Simple Partial Seizures

Symptoms may be motor, sensory, psychic (states of consciousness), and/or autonomic (involuntary activity controlled by the autonomic nervous system). There is no impairment of consciousness in simple partial seizures.

While there is a wide range of potential signs and symptoms, for most patients symptoms are stereotypical.

Motor signs include the following:

Alternating contraction and relaxation of muscle groups
Eye movements and turning of the head to the same side
Asymmetrical posturing of the limbs
Speech arrest, vocalization

Sensory symptoms include the following:

Seeing flashes of lights or colors, illusions and hallucinations
Hearing humming, buzzing, hissing noises
Experiencing unpleasant odors and tastes
Dizziness, lightheadedness

Autonomic signs and symptoms include the following:

Borborygmi (rumbling noises produced by gas in the intestines)
Nausea, vomiting
Piloerection (goose bumps)
Pupillary dilation
Tachycardia (rapid heart rate)

Psychic symptoms include the following:

Detachment, depersonalization
Dreamy state
Memory distortion: flashback, deja vu (feeling that one has seen something before), deja entendu (feeling that one has heard something before), jamais vu (feeling that one has never seen something that is familiar), jamais entendu (feeling that one has never heard something that is familiar), panoramic vision (rapid recall of past events)
Time distortion
Unprovoked emotion: fear, pleasure, displeasure, depression, anger, elation, eroticism"
thank you so so much I think this describes a lot of what I'm feeling
