Posted on March 20th, 2012 by

Ever feel lightheaded or dizzy from standing up too quickly? According to a new study, you might be more likely to suffer from heart failure…People experiencing orthostatic hypotension should speak with their doctor to see if a more serious underlying health problem - such as heart failure or dehydration - is the cause, according to the Mayo Clinic. People experiencing a mild sensation of dizziness should sit or lie down immediately, and the symptoms will usually disappear.
