Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

I need more information in order to short-list the possible causes.

However, from the brief information provided, the possible causes are fall in blood pressure in erect posture; cervical spondylosis, migraine or Trigeminal cephalgia (due to a inflammation of FIFTH cranial nerve responsible for conducting pain sensations from the temple + face + sinus.

relevant specific investigations (as applicable) would be required for pinpointing the cause.

Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he will agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable/modified treatment as advised.
