Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for being in follow-up.

I am afraid to say that the all the questions(1 to 6) can't have answers in Yes or No.
In these 2 questions,I have asked about the duration and frequency.It can't be YES or NO.
1)Since when you are having these spells?
2)What is their frequency-like once a day,once a week,once a month and likewise?

As you said that you had fainting spells and fainting means 'loss of consciousness',again the following two questions ask about the degree and duration of loss of consciousness,which can't be YES or NO-
5)Do you completely lose consciousness during the events?Are you able to recognise where you are and who is around you, during the fainting spell?
6)In how much time ,do you regain your senses?Are you absolutely normal or confused for some time after regaining senses?

I accept your NO for questions 3 and 4.

Please reply to the details asked so that I can answer your query well.
