Every time I get up, my vision goes either partially black or completely black,then I get dizzy and sometimes I have to hold on the something and once I even blacked out. At first I just thought I just got up too quickly, but sometimes it happens when I m just sitting down. I don t know what s going on.I m 14 by the way.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Autonomic changes that occur with change of posture can cause drop in blood pressure, dizziness, black outs and fainting. Though this can be normal sometimes, when recurrent it needs to be addressed. A simple blood pressure examination in lying down, sitting and standing posture will let you know if you have a significant postural drop. If the drop is significant it needs to be evaluated.

In addition, I also suggest you to get a basic cardiac evaluation done. Basic EKG with or without 2D echocardiogram will complete the evaluation.

If blood pressure changes, EKG and echocardiogram are within normal limit, then you do not have any major problem to be worried off.

Hope this helps.
