Lightheadedness was created by limbic
Has anyone ever experience frequent lightheadedness upon standing from a sitting position concurrent with times when your practice was making progress?

Yes! Sometimes it feels like I'm going to pass out for a few second, and then I regain my stability... by the way, this is the practice journal-board. This, I think, would fit better in the general dharma talk. <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Oh, I thought it was of a specific nature enough particularly about practice it would go well here.

What I'm wondering is if its related to practice or if I should get something checked out healthwise. A few times it was quite strong.

How long are you sitting for? If you are sitting in one spot for an hour and then stand up, you will likely feel lightheaded - meditating or not. Do you make more progress because you are sitting for longer?

I've been doing a lot of sitting, definitely sitting for more than an hour then standing up, but that one day the lightheadedness was happening much more than other days of basically the same sitting regimen.

And sitting longer for more progress has been a mark of my practice for a long time, but recently I've tried to move my practice into walking as well as an attempt to develop an ability to practice in the midst of ambiguity and ambivalence... which has worked out okay. I am basically on retreat, though
