Maybe you're standing up too fast.

PS. You know better than to seek medical advice here. ;)

Low blood sugar, water, and take some vitamins (may be lack of nutrients)

That happens to my girlfriend every once in a while. If this is just happening recetly, you may have an inner ear infection. Otherwise, low blood suger or a thyroid problem.

You probably have high (or was it low?) blood pressure.

When you stand up all the blood rushes down to your feet leaving your head deprived of oxygen, hence the dizzyness and lightheadedness.

They can feel fine... it's just an infection that causes your balance thingy to be out of whack... makes you dizzy/light headed, It should go away eventually... but it can last a while. If it isnt gone in a couple days see a doctor.

Get your blood pressure checked.
