In brief: The severe pain

Severe pain from any source can cause one to feel faint or completely pass out (syncope).
The symptom your having is like a blackout (pun intended). More important is that u r having recurrent episodes of severe pain. The main question is r these truly due to gall bladder disease, has it been diagnosed properly. If yes, get it removed by competent general surgeon and have good preop med clearance.
