i have done some research and i may possibly have outward pronation with internal rotation of the knee. can this cause off balance or feel faint?

Pronation Issues: When your foot pronates too far, the arch collapses inward driving the knee inward. This creates instability issues and a feeling of being off balance, especially when the pronation is asymmetrical. When designing orthotic devices for such a problem, not only is the pronation addressed, but the asymmetry with typically more correction on one side more than the other. Dr rich blake.

Fainting unlikely,: But the deformity of your leg could be related to a neurologic condition - we just would have to run a close examination and your medical history check.
