Sudden Seizures Happening. What Could Be The Cause ?

I have seizures that just started one day. I've had many tests and they have found nothing wrong that would seem to cause these seizures. However, recently my mom told me about a lady she worked with that has the same problem as me but her obgyn diagnosed her with something that has to do with the lining of her uterus that's causing her seizures. I would like to know if you know what this disease is and if you know anything about it.

Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.
Epilepsy or seizures is a brain disease, which occurs due to abnormal epileptiform activities in the brain.
Uterus has no connection to epilepsy.
However, some people have psychogenic seizures, which are also called as hysteria (as in the past, it was believed to be due to uterus problem, but this was proven wrong).
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
