    I fainted the other day but I don't know why. I asked the doctor what he thought caused it.

    The internet connection went down for a few minutes.
    With your second sentence, the fact that it only went down for a few minutes makes it clear (without stating it) that it then started working again, so I don't think you need the second half of your sentence.
