Are you feeling dizzy when you move from sitting to standing? That's normal. When you stand, it takes a little while for the blood that's been pooling in the lower part of your body to make its way back to the upper part of your body. You can reduce dizziness by getting up more slowly. However, if you are so dizzy that it feels like you might lose consciousness, tell your doctor.
