    Hey!

    I used to get that quite often and as the others mentioned it turned out to be low blood pressure in combination with a stiff neck from working at my computer too much ... maybe you wanna see an orthopaedist if your blood pressure is normal

    Pretty much anyone can experience it, if you really want to lol. Generally the fitter you are, the stronger your heart and therefore the more accommodating it is to this sort of thing. As such, on rare occasions it can be linked to heart problems, and if its happening frequently, or more importantly if its only just started happening, a check in with your doctor isn't going to hurt.

    So it's pretty normal?
    I probably do need to do more exercise and try and get a bit fitter. I always get dizzy doing it though =/ haha

    Well it isn't 'normal' as it isn't right, but as long as its not a) long lasting each time you stand up and b) not brought on by small postural changes then I can't see why its overly a problem. It could be being caused by some fairly trivial problem though (eg diet induced anaemia), so its worth getting it checked out incase its really easy to sort it. Generally speaking there aint much that can be done about it if its seen as idiopathic (no obvious cause).

    I had severe problems with my spine and from that the muscles cramped and from that I got dizy, was sick, had headaches etc. - that's the connection

    Okays, thanks for the advice I'll get it checked out if it gets any worse or keeps happening frequently. I don't want to cause a fuss for nothing
