Odd physical experience

Twice today (and infrequently in the past) I would be sitting or lying down and then as I was about to get up I would have the feeling of blood rushing to my head, getting tunnel vision, and would then have a rapid heart beat possibly with palpitations. As long as I stood up I felt as if I might pass out, and im not sure if the rapid heart beat was related to the experience or simply the result of my anxiety.

The whole experience only lasts about 30 seconds to a minute and of course my DP goes through the roof for that short amount of time. I've heard of similar experiences but this seemed more than a bit distressing. Has anyone else experienced this? What causes it?

Thanks for the reply, that was very informative. However, I've had my blood pressure taken before and it was never low, it was always within a normal range. I was sitting around alot that day and often sit around. Is it possible to have low pressure just from sitting around and not being active? Sort of temporary drops from inactivity that can then lead to the symptoms I described?

Otherwise I do have palpitations from time to time, broken sleep, etc. I have anxiety though, and these symptoms seem to be consistent with my emotional state.
