Thank you for the information.
From your symptoms it appears that you were having syncopal attacks.
Syncope is a temporary loss of consciousness due to transient loss of blood supply to the brain.
One of the common cause of syncope is vasovagal attack.
However there can be other causes like heart diseases, coughing spells, neurologic or lung problems, dehydration, emotional stress, exposure to heat etc.
The pain on one side can be from neurological issue.
There can be nerve impingement.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
After examination he can take scan, blood work.
Please try to stay hydrated by taking adequate fluid.
Avoid anxiety, stress.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.
