In brief: Low blood pressure?

If the symptoms are reliably triggered by changes in position (e.
g. Standing from a seated or lying position), they may represent orthostatic hypotension, a drop in blood pressure brought on by movement. Your pcp can confirm this and help narrow down causes, such as dehydration, heart trouble, or neuropathy. Other possible causes include bloodflow issues to the brain, so get checked out!
