Yes they always do for the first time !

You should be able to bend your knees and crouch down into the fetal position if you can't do that and still breathe normally then it is too tight.

When you put the suit on it should not be too tight on the neck otherwise you will cause carotic sinus reflex which could cause you to faint or worse.

Let me know if you want further advice !

cheers Andrew
