Brief Answer:
Requires immediate medical attention

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Passing out for a couple of minutes could be due to vasovagal atttack and could mean that the circulating blood volume or blood pressure had dropped somehow. But passing out for 10 to 15 mins could mean a serious concern and calls for a thorough evaluation. It could have a brain cause and needs to be systematically investigated. Proper history is also important. I would insist you to visit a doctor and to get it sorted out. Please do not ignore it.

Let me know if I could help further.
