A simple faint can occur in an otherwise healthy person as a result of a sudden, brief drop in blood supply to the brain.
Symptoms and signs
After a simple faint, consciousness returns within a few minutes. If this does not happen, the loss of consciousness may be the result of serious illness, such as stroke, heart attack or sudden, severe internal bleeding (for example, in ruptured ectopic pregnancy). If someone who has apparently fainted does not recover within minutes, seek medical help immediately.
