how old are you ?

when was the last time you saw your doctor?

you really should be seen at the ER for evaluation

you should not be passing out like this.

you may have to move to a nursing home where you can have more support and supervision so you don't fall and keep hurting yourself

you may benefit from having a walker and physical therapy to help strengthen your legs

you may need a brain MRI scan
