Why do I have weird deja vu spells?

My anxiety seems to be kicked off with a nice spell of deja vu that sends me down a spiraling hole of "oh god do I have epilepsy???" and it scares the daylights out me. When I do get deja vu spells they only last a little bit but depending on the thing that set it off, I get deja vu if I keep thinking about it. I don't convulse or anything when it happens, I have asked people around me what I do in those instances. My mom said that I just keep going with what I am doing, I dont shake, I dont blink wildly, I dont really stop talking. I just look really scared which I am! My mother, therapist, and high school homeroom teacher ( who was the nursing teacher at my school and a psychiatric ER nurse by night ) all said that my deja vu was most likely because of my anxiety. My homeroom teacher even said that since if I dont think about it too much as its happening it goes away quickly that its even more likely its just anxiety. That the reason why I am tired afterword is because I scare myself so bad that I go into anxiety fatigue. Which once again, all very true.
But all of this still scares me, everywhere I look on the internet it is a mix of "Oh yeah thats totally normal with anxiety!" and "Um....those are temporal lobe seizure."
