In brief: Orthostatic hypoten.

This is almost certainly due to orthostatic hypotension, a drop in blood pressure when rising.
There are many possible causes. It is important to see a good doctor for a thorough evaluation. See http://my.Clevelandclinic.Org/disorders/orthostatic_hypotension/hic_orthostatic_hypotension.Aspx one cause often overlooked is low adrenal function. See http://bit.Ly/16blg0r.
