Brief Answer:
Drop in blood pressure might be the cause

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Such episodes are generally caused by low blood pressure, low blood sugar level, dehydration, stroke or seizures etc.in your case it seems low blood pressure might be the cause.Diastolic of 60 is lower than normal.

Also get your blood sugar levels checked.

Maintain record of blood pressure over a period and get a clinical evaluation done.Doctor will get investigations done to determine the cause and plan treatment to prevent such episodes in future.

Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
