In brief: Hypoglycemia

This could easily be low blood sugar or stress or both.
The tingling often is associated with hyperventillation. Make sure you eat regularly and avoid refined carbs. Learn to relax by a meditation or yoga class.

In brief: Vagal response

This sounds like a vasovagal response.
Standing for a period of time, especially if knees locked out may cause this. May be worse if dehydrated, other medical conditions, or medications.
