Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms.

Based on the description, it seems that you had a syncopal attack. In this condition, the blood supply to brain reduces for a while, and this results in fainting.

There is no need to worry about this.

However, you need to ensure that you do not lose too much weight too fast. Also, please ensure that you are eating well and taking adequate rest.

Please get examined by a physician to ensure that general health is good.

For pain, you may take diclofenac tablets.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
