Feeling faint while kneeling?
#1
Yesterday at Mass my daughter started feeling dizzy and faint ... again.

This has happened a few times.  It has never happened at celebrations of the Divine Liturgy (Eastern Catholic) but only during the Mass in the Latin Rite and always during the time we have been kneeling for several minutes (either before or after receiving the Eucharist).  The only thing that is different between the Mass and the Divine Liturgy is the kneeling.  There is a great deal more kneeling in the Latin Rite.

Is is possible that there's some blood flow problem created during kneeling for her?  Like the issue of locking your knees when you stand?

I'm going to have her remain seated next Sunday rather than kneeling to see if this is the problem.  Is it wrong for her to sit instead of kneel so that we can track the source of these dizzy/faint spells?  If there is an issue is it okay for her to continue to sit rather than kneeling?
