Why do I always feel like I am going to pass out when I stand up?

Everytime I stretch or anything! It's so annoying.

  • You are probably experiencing an actual blood pressure drop when you stand. Look up Orthostatic hypotension. You should be evaluated by your doctor to find out what is causing it for you. Some causes are correctable . . . but it may indicate something more serious going on that needs treatment.

    It may also just indicate that you are a bit dehydrated, but if it goes on, please see your doc.
