There are variety of causes for fainting.  It can be a side effect from the needles of allergy testing or blood tests.  It can also be something more serious - like a heart condition.

To evaluate this, I would consider an EKG and possible echocardiogram to evaluate for any structural abnormalities.  If the fainting continues, you can consider a cardiology referral for further evaluation.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
