Hi there. The various causes of syncope are central nervous system ischemia, vasovagal syncope may occur during urination, coughing etc, postural, cardiac syncope, neurological syncope, hypoglycemia, deglutition syncope associated with solids swallowing, cardiac includes cardiac arrhythmias, obstructive cardiac lesions, structural cardiopulmonary disease, sick sinus syndrome etc. Various clinical tests like blood tests for hemoglobin, ECG, holter to record electrical activity of heart, tilt table test, insertable cardiac monitor, etc would be required. Consult a cardiologist immediately for the needful assessment and management. Take care.
