Sudden dizziness in rare episodes when standing up from a bending down position to pick up something from the floor cause? Htn & pcos

Orthostatic hypotens: You are experiencing orthostatic hypotension. When you band down and then get up quickly the blood has pooled in your legs. It needs time to make it up to your brain. You have receptors in your veins that cause theveins to pump the blood back to your heart so it can then be pumped to your brain.
