Orthostatic hypotension is a condition in which there is a fall in blood pressure on standing up from sitting or lying position. (Hypotension is low blood pressure.) Feeling dizzy or lightheaded on standing up is a common symptom.Sometimes, people with orthostatic hypotension may even faint. There are numerous causes of orthostatic hypotension like aging (more common in the elderly)hypovolemia (low volume of blood), dehydration (low body fluid volume), immobility (staying in bed for a long time in hospital/home), pregnancy, heart conditions like heart attack, irregular heart rhythm, heart failure, and valvular diseases, anemia (low red blood cell count), Parkinson's disease, Transient ischemic attacks, stroke, and other nervous disorders. This review
