What can cause dizziness and nausea along with fainting?

I have been dizzy all day, it started yesterday when I felt sick to stomach. I passed out about two hours ago. If I lay down I feel dizzy and then again when I sit up I am dizzy. Then I start trying to throw up, but have nothing on my stomach. What does come up is yellow and very bitter.

Nausea along with fainting and passing out may be due to seizure disorder or anemia with syncope or cardiogenic arrhythmia with syncope etc.

Until examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is. Please check your blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Get it done ECG, X-ray chest and ultrasound abdomen. Then consult your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Last nigh my husband got up from bed in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. When he went to the bathroom, he felt nauseous and dizzy and turned around to sit down. As he was doing this, he fainted. I heard the crash and walk in and saw him passed out on the floor. He woke up after i shook him shortly after. What happened? Should we be concerned? He is 60.
