This is a serious problem that I will not be able to figure out over the Internet. Your fainting could be due to low blood pressure, a vasovagal response ( something to stimulate you to lower your blood pressure ) to something, or some problem with the beating of your heart. You need to get into see your doctor immediately or go to an urgent care center is you will need to be evaluated for this immediately. Hope this helps
