Your symptoms have me very concerned. Please go to ED right now!! ...Read more

Insomnia can also cause this. Dark vision on standing is due to transient low blood pressure(orthostatic hypotension). If this happens frequently later in the day see your physician to see if low BP is the cause. ...Read more
