Every time I stand up, my vision goes blurry dark-like and I get extremeley light headed to where I feel as though I have to hold on to something so I don't fall over. A few seconds later i'm fine. What's wrong with me?

The only thing in the world I can think of is so simple: you're not drinking enough water. Try drinking more water. Couldn't hurt. Worth a try!

Light-headedness
A couple of years ago, I also felt light-headed all the time-when I was driving, when I got up from the cough etc. I went to the doctor and she told me that I had extremely low traces of iron in my body. Foods that have large percentages of iron in them are: nuts, spinach, and fish. I also took vitamins everyday to bring more iron into my body. After a couple of weeks, all of the light-headedness went away. So, maybe you should try to drink lots of fluids and more iron in your diet to combat any bluriness. Good luck!

You don't want to have any regrets that could have been avoided. Don't take chances with you health.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to vasovagal syncope, anemia,
Addison disease, drugs or arrhythmia.
You need full assessment.
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
