Orthostatic: This is very typical of orthostatic hypotension, your blood pressure false for few seconds when you stand up due to blood pooling in lower extremities. Unless you have fainting, or blood pressure problems during the day, usually this situation does not require treatment.

BP: when there are concerns for a drop in BP with standing, BP should be checked while lying down then sitting and finally while standing
