    Black spots when I stand up
    EmilyJR posted:
    Recently it has been getting worse, but lucky I have never fallen or passed out. I get up and I become very dizzy and see black spots for about a minute, my heart begins beating very quickly, and sometimes I cannot see at all. It doesnt last more then a minute and doesnt always happen so severely when I stand. Can anyone help me figure this out?

    I have a lot of other symptoms such as weakness, abnormal sleep (I can sleep for 20 hours easily), increased urination, mild headaches, and slightly darkened spots on the back of my neck (about the size of quarters). I have no idea if any of this is even related to one thing.

    Id love to get some advice on this since no one else has been able to help.
