    Thanks for posting the link! I've often said that my IQ drops at least 30 points when I stand up. ;) My other joke is that gravity is my arch enemy.

    For those who don't want to read the whole thing, this is a small study where CFS/POTS patients were subjected to orthostatic stress and then given mental tests. Here are two brief quotes:
    This appears to be a grad student's disseration. But the advisor is Dr. Julian Stewart and he is a well known expert in this field (e.g., he's the author of this medscape article - http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/902155-overview#aw2aab6b6).
