What you are referring to is called Orthostatic Hypotension, though not a medical emergency there are methods of combating this issue. When you stand up, your blood pressure drops so making sure to be hydrated helps.

blood has a harder time to reach your head and thus it can’t do as much.

or in scientific terms:
Orthostatic hypotension — also called postural hypotension — is a form of low blood pressure that happens when standing after sitting or lying down. Orthostatic hypotension can cause dizziness or lightheadedness and possibly fainting. Orthostatic hypotension can be mild.


I saw this and laughed out loud so hard. I have orthostatic hypotension and my eyes do turn off when I stand up and so does my hearing sometimes
