When i stand up too fast or stretch too hard

When i stand up or stretch to hard, i actually like, blackout.
I just fade away, then collapse to the floor, have a mini "seizure" for like 5 seconds, basically my whole body is like twitching and having spasms.
Then, i slip back into conciousness and get up like nothing ever happened.
Never had this when i was younger, the doctors say my blood pressure is normal.
I'm just hoping there isn't something wrong with the bloodflow to my head, my neck is slanted a bit forward, from bad posture probably while on the computer, watching tv etc.
I'm just hoping this isn't anything serious, i know to avoid it to just, stop stretching and standing up fast.
But i didn't have this when i was younger, and i'm hoping it won't develop into something severe in the future.
Is this normal?

Pre-syncope can happen to everyone if they standup quickly. I notice that I feel this way if I havent eaten enough good food, and when I dont drink enough water.
