Hi,: Hi, if I understand you correctly, you get blurred or darkened vision, with weakness of the knees and a feeling like you are going to pass out about three times after sitting for a long while and then standing up. You indicated that you have passed out from dehydration and heat stroke in the past. I cannot diagnose the reason for this. I think you need to see your doctor about this and he or she can check you for orthostatic hypotension or other conditions. Sometimes when you get up, gravity causes blood to pool in your legs, as a result, less blood is making its way up to the brain. Because the blood brings oxygen to the brain, you can feel lightheaded. Other symptoms can include feeling dizzy, having blurred or dimmed vision (sometimes to the point of being unable to see), and feeling faint. Make sure you get enough liquids every day. Sometimes eating smaller meals more often can help. Get up slowly when you go from lying to sitting or sitting to standing (especially after eating). Ask your doctor to check over your medications, to see if any of them may be contributing to this. There is potential to faint and become injured with your symptoms, so you should definitely contact your doctor. Take care. ...Read more
