In brief: Spells

Your symptoms sound like drops in blood pressure.
Sometimes this is termed orthostatic hypotension or neurocardiogenic syncope if it leads to actual fainting. Have your doctor check your pressure lying down, sitting up, and standing.

In brief: Lightheaded

Might be as simple as dehydration or not enough water intake.
See your primary doctor for further evaluation to be sure.
