    Feel dizzy everytime I get up?

    Whenever I get up quickly from sitting/lying down 9 times out of the time I get really dizzy and stumble if i am walking. Very few times I see black spinning like when you close your eyes when your dizzy...

    Can someone explain what it is, why it happens and what I can do to get up please?

    I think that's quite normal when you get up fast but if you're really worried see a doctor about it.
    I'm clever, I just don't have the qualifications to prove it!
    I can, I will, I must succeed!

    Whether that would turn out well in the end, of course, is another matter."

    Probably orthostatic hypotension - commonly known as a head rush. Think it can happen to pretty much anyone if they stand up fast enough, as it's just a sudden drop in blood pressure, but some people are more prone to it that others:

Consuming alcohol may also lead to orthostatic hypotension due to its dehydrating effects on the body.
    Not usually owt to worry about, but if you are worried, see your doctor.
