In brief: Change in BP

When you stand up, especially quickly, it takes a few seconds for your blood pressure to adjust.
It drops, the blood supply to your brain drops, and your vision may blur or dim briefly. If you stand up more slowly, you can usually avoid this. The medical term is "orthostatic hypotension.".
