I have also suffered from this from the age of 8 (I am now 57) I have experienced many fainting fits and one very intense seizure and 2 not so bad. I have been admitted to hospital and they always say there is nothing wrong with me. It has happened following a cut, after suffering from a severe headache for 2 weeks and during the night after passing a motion. I have also 'wet' myself while being unconscious . I have become very wary of not eating regularly and when I feel faint immediately resting for a few hours. Apparently my lips turn blue and I have great difficulty in talking afterwards and need to sleep for al least 24 hours. I am not epileptic nor do I suffer from angina but I do have a very low blood pressure and slow heart rate. I always know when I am about to faint.
