Dear patient,

The passing out episodes may be related to a vasovagal reaction, that is, due to an unpleasant stimulus such as pain or nausea, the body transiently decreases pulse and pressure, reducing perfusion to be brain and leading to near fainting or fainting spells. The cause of the post prandial vomiting though needs to be investigated; pregnancy must be ruled out as well.

Yours truly,
