Seizure? Fainting? Stress? Head pain

16 year old male currently under much stress.  Normal weight.  2nd event of sudden weakness, blacking out.  He explained that he felt "bad" "funny" and has in the past experienced what sounds like ortostatic hypotension but mentioned a momentary sharp pain in his head.  He does not currently take medication.  He said he has had a blood test the last time it happened and the doctor said it had to do with a sugar spike and fall.  Now  this happened again and he had not had much sugar.  It has been about a month since the 1st incident.  He is staying with us because his mother has a drinking problem so I cannot authorize medical treatment.  When he passed out he was on the sofa and I could not rouse him for about a minute even by smacking his arms.  He was unaware of my attempts to awaken him.  Please advise if I need to take action - I am very worried and I am not a worrier.  Thanks
