Could it all be connected?

Hi guys. So I'm a 14 year old female and in the past 7 months I have been diagnosed with epilepsy (absence seizures) and scoliosis following a tailbone dislocation and fracture from volleyball. Does anyone know of a connection between the two? Also, I have been told from a doctor that I have panic disorder but could these be a different type of seizure? When i have these supposed panic attacks I have a LOT of shaking, heart beating really fast, headaches, nausea, sweating and I throw up. Any feed back would be great!
