You might have had a sudden drop in your blood pressure or heart rate secondary to medications or due to natural ailments. Also neurological or vascular conditions may result in poor cerebral flow and result in syncope and fall. Middle ear conditions can also cause dizziness and spinning sensation. You need to have a thorough cardiac, neurologic, cerebrovascular and perhaps ENT work up.
