General & Family Physician 's  Response

By the history you have given, you seem to have a condition called orthostatic or postural hypotension. When a person gets up, due to the force of gravity, the blood rushes to the lower parts of the body, decreasing blood supply to the brain. In normal persons, intrinsic reflex mechanisms of the body prevent this from happening. However, in orthostatic hypotension, there is some amount of insufficiency in these reflex mechanisms and hence a person gets dizzy when they get up. I suggest that you immediately consult a cardiologist.

Hope you recover soon
