ok, ive gone to the doctor and done as much research as i can do and still no answer.

I have dizzyness and head rush when i stand up, and i have to tilt my head down to make it go away. From what ive read, this may be orthostatic hypotension.

My hands and feet will also get too hot or too cold and turn blue or red.
Color change is most pronounced in my feet. The redness often looks like an aweful sunburn or something and my feet feel like they are full of blood, which is quite unconfortable verging on painful.

The redness also happens on my knees and in sploches on my thighs.

We though maybe raynaud's?

also, i dont know if it is a symptom of anything or not, but my heart rate is elevated after a shower. Not sure if this is normal.

If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it.
