In brief: Lost consciousness

If you had real loss of consciousness then i hope you are under the care of a physician.
If you had more than one episode of sudden loss of consciousness then you need a full work up. Are those caused by seizures, or by a cardiac arrhythmia, aortic stenosis or tias, medication effect, or just fear. Get a neurologist & cardiac evaluation or at least go to your pcp.
