Customer Question

Hi - the other night I 'blacked out' fell backwards and passed out for a short while, apparently my face was a little contorted etc. Im not worried as this has never happened before, and there is no history in the family of this sort of thing, but my mrs is panicing - any ideas what it could be, is it worth seeing a doctor?
