In brief: Not a real problem

Excessive cough can limit the amount of blood returning to the heart and therefore cause syncope or a blackout spell which is reversible when cough stops.

In brief: Neurocardiogenic

Coughing can stimulate nerves in the throat that cause a vasovagal response.
This vasovagal response results in a drop in blood pressure which can lead to dizziness or even fainting. Treatment is directed at cough prevention.
