Seizure disorder, stomach pain, eyes rolles down. Endoscope and CT scan done. Esophagus problem. Does stomach pain cause seizure?

I have an unknow seizure disorder and was put on Keppra... have not had a seizure for 7 months till this morning in my sleep.... had woken up with severe stomach pain and laid back down woke up to rolling my eyes back to normal... hate the feeling :/ and then thought not tired could not keep my eyes open. Recently saw an Gastro specialist and they are quickly scheduling an endoscope... my Ct scan showed something severly wrong with my esophagus ... he did not know what but concerned enough to put me on will call for the endo :/ question is can my stomach pain be causing the seizure or other way around ??

I think he is right that I doubt you have epilepsy- this is a puzzling problem called sandifer syndrome wherein you create a posture as what you did to relieve hiatus hernia, a small bulge of your stomach. Once you are done with endoscope study, it can be completely curable and you can have a normal life.
