Temporary blindness/ ear ringing

This has happened to me twice in my life time. Once a couple years ago and once just today. A couple years ago, I fell backwards onto my arm and after a couple minutes, my vision got so bright and distorted that I couldn't see AND my ears were ringing so loud that I couldn't hear anything. After a few minutes my vision and hearing returned to normal. Then, just today someone much heavier than I accidently ran into me and put all their weighton my leg. My vision, just as before, got very bright and distorted and my ears rang so loud that I couldn't hear anything. I looked everywhere on the internet and I couldn't find anything even close to what I have. The closest was vertigo, but I wasn't dizzy after it happened either time. Thanks for your help.

Sounds like a vasovagal response/attack secondary to these accidents.
