Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Dizziness when sitting or standing and seeing black and white spots with difficulty breathing are all symptoms of postural hypotension. It will help if you first sit from the laying position, then wait for a couple of minutes before you stand and wait for a couple more before you walk. I think that the worm like things that you see in front of your eyes are floaters and you should consult an ophthalmologist for the same. Also a cardiac profile with a stress test should rule out cardiac pathology, with your having difficulty breathing.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
