Actually this is not as silly as it may sound:

Every year more than 200,000 people are hospitalised after suffering a sudden blackout and fall. Usually it's assumed they've fallen because they're old and frail. Others end up being diagnosed with epilepsy. But often the real cause is actually an arrhythmia - where the heart beats either too slow or too fast. This causes a lack of blood flow to the brain and temporary loss of consciousness, known as a syncope. It is a deeply worrying problem, as an untreated arrhythmia, while also extremely debilitating, can lead to sudden cardiac death.

Dr Fitzpatrick's own research suggests up to half of those who suffer from blackouts actually have a heart problem, including arrhythmias. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/artic ... ition.html

If you suffer from fainting go and get an ECG checkup!
