This : This is complex enough, that i think it would be wise to have your mother take you to the emergency room to find out the cause of these symptoms.

It : It sounds as though you had a vasovagal event. In plain english: the stomach pain, probably a result of gas traveling through your GI tract caused you to faint. The vagus nerve is the nerve that sets off that reaction.
Your mother should take you to a doctor to get checked out.
