Brief Answer:
below are the common reasons for blackouts

Detailed Answer:
three major reasons for blackouts-
Syncope: a sudden lack of blood supply to the brain. Syncope is caused by a problem in the regulation of blood pressure or by a problem with
the heart.
Epilepsy: an electrical ‘short-circuiting’ in the brain. Epileptic attacks are usually called seizures. Diagnosis of epilepsy is made by a neurologist.
Psychogenic blackouts: resulting from stress or anxiety. Psychogenic blackouts occur most often in young adults. They may be very difficult to diagnose.
I would suggest to consult your physician and you may need to see a neurologist. Thanks.
