Your symptoms could be caused by a number of things. The most common is an overactive vagal nerve or autonomic dysfunction (which causes difficulty regulating blood pressure, heart rate, etc). Basically, what happens is one of these conditions causes your blood pressure to become too low, resulting in not enough blood getting to the brain (transiently), you feel all the symptoms you described above, then you pass out and your blood pressure shoots up to compensate. If you have haven't seen a cardiologist, it would be reasonable to do so, and maybe have a tilt table test to try to provoke the symptoms.
