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.

At that point, laser resurfacing combined with selective removal of pitted acne scars can help improve acne scarring. I hope that helps! ...Read more
