Two main causes: If the dizziness is triggered only by standing up, it's likely to be related to an abnormal drop in blood pressure. If it's triggered by other maneuvers such as rolling over in bed, it's probably vertigo, an inner ear disturbance. Vertigo is usually perceived as a sensation of objects moving/ spinning around you. Low blood pressure-induced dizziness usually involves dimming of vision.
