    When you got really high on the swing, nearly parellel to the ground, did it cause a sensation of lightheadness? If so, was this sensation in any way painful for you?

    I have a good reason for asking. [​IMG]

    I took a little blue anti-spasmotic and a muscle relaxant at the same time once. It made me lightheaded. The room was all spinny.

    I still swing- but now it makes me dizzy. Never had any pain. What are you doing swinging til it hurts? [​IMG]

    When I swing that high, I bounce right out of the swing. It's... an interesting feeling. But never lightheadedness.

    No I didn't. It was the moment my rear left the seat and I sailed into the air that my mind was saying " OMG HELP!" and then I crashed into the ground.

    Lightheadness for me! A little more afraid than I ever was on a swing for my entire life LOL! I love to swing but now I can only swing low and SLOW!

    The only pain I remember from swinging is the time I plummeted to the ground after being "dared" by my older brothers to see how far I could jump [​IMG]

    Why do you ask?

    Light headed and a feeling in the pit of my tummy like a roller coaster ride.

    Okay, so I see some have experienced the lightheadednes but not to the point of it being painful. Interesting. Thanks. [​IMG]
