Many possibilities: There are quite a few possibilities for the symptoms you describe - from low blood pressure on standing (with many causes), to anxiety with hyperventilation, to a low calcium level, and peripheral neuropathy. Best to get checked out if this hasn't resolved on its own.

Multiple etiologies from vascular to neurological to endocrine to metabolic to psychiatric. In other words a wide spectrum of possibilities. I would recommend meeting with your family doctor as an initial step and he/she wold be to do a history and physical examination as well as lab work to help clarify the situation.
