Please mention your age, sex, duration of complaints, and what happens to you after the fainting episode, do you regain consciousness immediatley or not, any other symptoms associated, or involuntary passage of urine etc.
Cause of such fainting attacks can be many- 1. Cadiac , eg: vasovagal syncope 2. Postural eg : standing for too long 3.Dehyration or may be due to blood loss as in menses 4. Seizures 5. Psychiatric causes like panic or anxiety etc

Your symptoms suggest that it could be Seizures. You must see a NEUROPHYSICIAN without wasting time. It could be dangerous, may lead at an accident , if goes on like this.

I would suggest you to see a neurologist/neurophysician. Some forms of Epilepsy also presents like this, also do the investigation adviced that could include a CT scan, to see insides of your head.
