  • I am not sure what it might be, but it's certainly not good to drive until you have it looked into medically. You could kill yourself or someone else. Could be blood pressure related or something.

  • I would ask a Neurologist.Any other symptoms before the blackout happens?Do you remember anything while you are "blacked out"?How long does it last? Do you fall or do you have time to sit down?
