    Hi all!

    Interesting article in the Telegraph that came out few days ago...

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/8596450/How-gravity-can-knock-you-sideways.html

    Mentions the Newcastle Uni study that suggested 40% of people with CFS may have POTS.

    Good to get some more coverage of such invisible illnesses and explore the possible links between them. And to try to dispel the ignorance amongst the general public and even many doctors!

    Thanks Matli - the Telegraph seems to be the most progressive in science and things medical. POTS was certainly a symptom of mine for a while amongst many others. I noted CFS used and look forward to the day when the proper name ME replaces it.

    Yes - saw that too. They put "people with suspected chronic fatigue syndrome (also known as ME)" but used ME throughout the article.

    I have seen it too. It gets so tiring to hear the same old things to help POTS. The supposed experts always have th same things to say, ha. Compression hose, etc. There are so many good supplements to help the body heal and help the awful symptoms. Integrative doctors seem to be the only doctors that know that. The autonomic docs need to figure it all out.
