    Nop.
    This is common - and is called Positional hypotension. It means that your blood pressure drops slightly for a few seconds due to the change in position. (in your case sitting -though more commonly upon getting up quickly while lying down) When you lie down-or sit - the brain is getting plenty of oxygen from the blood flow - but when you change positions(i.e.- stand up) - the blood pressure(heart beating) has to change to meet the demand in the extremities(legs, head, etc.) In your case, the legs have had a decrease blood flow while sitting(your feet may also swell) -and when you stand, the blood flow is increased and it takes that few seconds for the blood to get back to the heart -in that time, there is a slight decrease in blood flow to the brain - thus, dizziness and black or white outs. It is your body's way of keeping sufficient blood flow to the brain(it's primary target) - Worse case scenario - you will pass out - and once you are prone(lying down-as in, on the floor) - the brain once again gets suficient blood flow - and you'll come to! The problem is, you may also hurt yourself.
    The key here is to be cognizant of the fact that you need to get circulation in your legs - before you jump up and start sprinting down the hall and faint. Stand up more slowly - hold on to something until the dizzyiness passes - then proceed.

    Doesn't happen to me. But that combined with the fact your eyelashes are falling out, do you have any other symptoms? Might wanna check in with your doctor.
