Thare are many causes of fainting, but in the setting of acute pain, fainting is suaually neurally mediated, in what we call a vasovagal reaction, an automatic nerve is stimulated due to the pain and causes the heart rate to go low as well as the blood pressure.
Plenty of fluids, avoiding pain and sitting down when you get premonitory symptoms are all indicated.
