Feeling like i'm going to faint almost everytime when i stand right after i lay down. What should I do to get rid of this?

Feeling like i'm going to faint almost everytime when i stand right after i lay down. What should I do to get rid of this?

Orthostatic : Hypotension is the most common explanation for this. The autonomic nervous system regulates blood pressure responses to position. If you have been lying flat for a while then jump up, sometimes the blood pressure doesn't keep up and blood flow takes a while to get to your brain. This happens with some meds. The best thing to do is to sit awhile before standing to let blood get to the brain. ...Read more

After you complete Accutane treatment, you must wait at least six months before treating any scarring that is left over from the acne. At that point, laser resurfacing combined with selective removal of pitted acne scars can help improve acne scarring. I hope that helps! ...Read more
