Orthostasis: This is a phenomenon called orthostasis. It is very common and usually related to blood volume status. The reason you are having this is the unclear part and what a doctor can help you with. When lying flat the body produces more urine which will worsen your symptoms Try doing 5 toe raises when you feel the symptoms to raise your blood pressure and put 3 pillows behind your head when you lie
