What causes dizziness and blackouts in the field of vision?

I ve been getting random bouts of dizziness and light headedness these passed few months that generally last a day or less. At the moment I m in one of these episodes and it s lasted two days. Also, two days ago I was standing in the kitchen with my friends and I suddenly just felt wrong. I couldn t place my finger on it, but I felt off. Then my vision began to go Black and I got very dizzy. I had to crouch down and when I tried to drink water my hand was shaking. As my vision came back I tried to explain to my friends what happened and my hearing was muffled for a few minutes. Should I go in? What could this be?
