Low blood pressure: Blood pools in your legs while sitting. If you stand the body tells the veins and arteries to squeeze in the legs. If your dehydrated or have other conditions the response may not be strong enough to get blood to your brain.

Yes: If the heart rate or blood pressure goes too low dizziness may occur. You should report this to your doctor.
