Fainting Spells

I had my first fainting experience about 7 years ago when I witnessed someone having a seizure. I began to feel light-headed, hearing a low humming/buzzing noise, and my vision started closing in, and I passed out. Over the years, this problem has gotten progressively worse. I've had this when someone around me vomits or injures themself, I've experienced it while watching the Learning Channel and other ER type television shows. I also experience it when receiving shots. During one episode, I was told that my eyes rolled back and I started seizuring. Only once was I able to warn someone before I fainted.
