So you know how when you stand up too fast blood rushes to your brain and you go blind for a couple of seconds? That happened with me today but it took a second to kick in, and when it did, I suddenly became weakened and had to lean against the door frame while i went blind for a good minute. Towards the end, when my senses more or less came back, i realized my legs (and maybe my hands too but i am not sure) were shaking violently, as if i were having a seizure. I've never had a seizure in my life, i've only fainted once before (when i was around 9-11 years old) and i eat regularly (4 meals a day). Earlier in the day, when i stood up before i noticed small black spots dotting my vision, but it wasn't severe and went away within a few seconds (I'm a 16 y/o female by the way). Is this something i should worry about and get checked out by a doctor?
