Ever get really dizzy when you stand up really fast? That happens to me all the time. That’s called Orthostatic Hypotension or Postural Hypotension. What the hell that means is that upon rising, your blood pressure drops real low BECAUSE all of your blood is in your legs and you stood up too fast for the blood to adjust and get back to the heart and affect the right things. Sooooo you get dizzy because there’s very little blood getting to the brain and you have to hold onto something – at least I do. I have really low blood pressure to begin with so I have to be really careful about this. If this happens to you, take your time standing up. If you start from the lying position, sit up first and stay like that for like 30 seconds, maybe even longer, then stand up. Give your blood/heart time to adjust. If it happens to the point that you lose consciousness, you should probably go see one of those doctor people.
