Migraine type headache if lying down too fast

If I lay down too fast from standing I get migraine type aura and my head is throbbing like the blood pressure is too high. I feel so uncomfortable that I have stand up again. I feel immeadiately better and aura disappears but I am left with headache. This happens often and has happened for couple of years. I don't know what it is and google doesn't give answers.

What about something to do with the carotids? I am not medical in any way, have you seen a Dr about it?

I will go and see gp about this. I still have headache from yesterday.

Went to see gp. Basically he hadn't about this kind of thing before. He did blood pressure testing, listened my heart, looked in my ears and had a look of ekg I had done this morning(for another reason). He said that he will wait for the report for ekg but said that it seems that this behaviour is just unique to me.
