In brief: Two red flags

2 different problems: 1 that your blood pressure falls when you stand up, and the other suggests that something happens when you extend your neck.
Both of these are good reasons to see your physician and get your blood pressure checked, as well as perhaps check for anemia. Extending the neck sometimes pinches the tiny arteries in the neck (cervical) spine, called vertebral artery insufficiency.

In brief: See your doctor

Dizziness and vertigo can come from problems from inner ear disease to vascular disease.
Please see your family doctor or internist who may refer you to vascular specialists for further testing.
