BP problem: Usually this is a postural hypotensive issue that can occur if you are anemic or have a weakly responsive vascular system to such activities as standing up after crouching or sitting for a long time. If this is consistent, and the vision recovers fully in between, then your family doctor should be contacted for an analysis of your cardiovascular system.
