    You said your last thought was " must get my spray" did you pass out before you got it or after giving yourself a spray ? Also how often did you have to use your spray prior to this attack ? I'm thinking if you did get to have a spray it made your blood pressure plummet causing you to pass out espicially if you haven't had to use it for ages. The other thing is you may well of suffered from another heart attack. There could also be many other  reasons as to why you passed out.If you have chest pain now I'd be going to the emergency department  to get checked out.

    I hope you are feeling better. If you haven't been to your doctor yet, I suggest you do so. Usually when people pass out for more than a few minutes, you start to lose either your short-term memory or long term memory. I suggest mentioning that to the doctor as well.
