Hello,

You are experiencing orthostatic hypotension. Kindly take plenty of fluids and stretch your feet and legs for 1-2 min before getting up from bed or chair to avoid serious hypotension event leading to fall. Also get you BP checked for the record.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
