As you have been smoking from last 30 years, so the your this severe cough is due to inflammation of bronchioles, calles as Chronic bronchitis.Along with inhaler , you require corticosteroids, and inhalers, If required antibiotics may be given.

Regarding blackout. i would suggest you that it may be due to any of these causes- Heart disease, Low blood sugar ,renal dysfunction. You will be required to go for more blood work including- EKG, CBC, RFT, Blood sugar levels checked.

Consult Physician for evaluation and getting tests done.
