Hypotension : You have postural hypotension, in which your sudden standing up doesn't allow enough time for your heart to pump hard or fast enough to get blood to your head. This is what make you feel dizzy, blurry or even tunnel vision during these episodes. It's best to standup more slowly & wait till you feel ok before moving. You should have your MD check your BP/heart & blood counts to make sure you're ok
