Vasovagal syncope: Individuals may report profuse sweating, nausea, ringing in the ears, dimming of vision, vomiting, feeling dizzy or lightheaded, feeling warm, and pale skin prior to fainting. Individuals may also report previous episodes of fainting. Some individuals may report a history of syncope following a certain event, such as urination, defecation, coughing, or swallowing. Seizure could be another reason.
