Thank you for posting your query.
The most likely cause for brief loss of consciousness in your mother is syncope. In this condition, the blood supply to the brain reduces for a short period, leading to fainting. The underlying causes can be hunger, tiredness, infection, diarrhea, etc. Please get her examined by a physician to exclude any underlying cause. The other cause can be a seizure (fits), but it less likely.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
