Hello,

Most probably it is due to hypotension (low blood pressure).

However other causes like anemia and thyroid dysfunction also been ruled out. If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
