See your doctor : Your symptoms could be due to a variety of conditions. This could be anxiety, illness, low blood sugar, orthostatic hypotension (drop in blood pressure with position change or standing). Your doctor will ask you questions, perform an exam and provide a diagnosis. Feel better soon.
