Not uncommon: Not necessarily abnormal if you only feel you are going to pass out, and good reason not to stand up too fast. Can also be a side effect of some medications, especially if those to control blood pressure problems. Consult your dr. If you are on medication & also if you actually pass out and fall to the ground.
