12yr old-headaches upon standing

Hi, my son is 12 and for awhile now gets headaches when standing. Not all the time, usually after laying down(reading etc) for awhile. When he gets up, he gets a throbbing headache. The pain will last for about 10min to a half hour. On occassion they will last longer. Any ideas?

Maybe get his blood pressure checked. They'll do a series of tests with him laying down and then standing up.
