Dizziness, fainted, not unconscious, static in ears. Reason?

My daughter says she fainted at work. She says she did not lose consciousness , but that everything went white and she fell. She had been dizzy and leaned against a wall. She remembers falling, she was thinking she slipped, she remembers her body bumping into everything then people standing over her. They said her face was very pale and she heard static in her ears. She feels fine now, but I worry about letting her drive back to work.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
This fainting episode is looking like syncope most probably because of vasovagal syncope.
Prolonged standing will lead to this condition.
Some times low blood pressure due to orthostatic hypotension also presents with fainting.
Her blood pressure is checked to look for low blood pressure and for orthostatic hypotension.
Other investigations like ECG, EEG, 2D Echo to be done to rule out any underlying cardiac and neuro problems such as seizures.
Hence take her to the doctor for clinical examination and for investigations.
Hope I have answered your query.
