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

Why do I feel dizzy and have blurred vision when i get up? What could be wrong?

Why do I feel dizzy and have blurred vision when i get up? What could be wrong?

Low blood pressure: When you sit or crouch, the blood is squeezed out of the lower part of your body. Then when you stand up it pools in these parts and lowers the pressure in the upper part, especially the brain. This can cause visual blur, dizziness and a feeling of faintness. This might also mean you are anemic. If this happens most of the time, check with your family doctor for diagnosis. ...Read more
