fainting spells, is my condition getting worse?

I am a 34 yr old hypertensive male, i recently started having stomach pains, ulcer like and two days ago i think i fainted, cos i think i lost consciousness briefly after a sudden stomach pain. I notice that this pain starts mostly when i smoke.

2. this is another issue, for some time now i've noticed that at night, usually at night i wake up with sudden muscle weakness, difficulty breathing and weak pulse, and palpitations, i notice my heart beating weakly. this usually resolves when i stand up, what could be the prob, my doctor says its not from my heart but i suspect it is cos it occurs afer prolonged angina or arrhythmia.

I am currently taking atenolol, captopril, amlodipine, aspirin, isordil and moduretic, i drink and smoke moderately, could it be a drug interraction

Gonziii, it seems to me that you wrote somewhere that you have LVH. You need to get checked out by an EP Doctor and have an electical study on your heart. You may be passing out due to arrhythmias and that needs to be addressed!
