Thanks so much for posting this question.
From your description it sounds like it could be a single isolated migraine to a more serious condition that you should check with your doctor. Sometimes blood pressure can have those effects of dizziness, blackouts.
Again if you feel the same recurrent pain you should get yourself check just to rule out a more serious condition.
I see many patients with similar symptoms to yours and with some specific exercises that combines coordination, balance and stamina it helps to regain control and self awareness. You can give it a try and if it bothers you stop:
1- Raise the opposite arm and leg for ten times
2.-from a standing position raise your arms to the side while simultaneously you raise both heels and hold it for five seconds do it ten times
3. Finish a meditation practice where you are just following and focusing your breath for 5 minutes.
I hope this helps!
