Get up more gradually. If lying down, sit up for some seconds before standing or walking. Give the body a chance to adjust to the new position/activity. I have this problem a little myself from time to time.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. High blood pressure and hypotension are oxymorons and cant stay together. You may have postural hypotension and for that you need to be evaluated for BPPV and postural hypotension and then treated accordingly.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
