International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Would I be right in saying that the head spins I often get immediately after standing up are due to the drop in pulse pressure, until my heart rate increases to compensate?

    The head spins are probably due to the lower perfusion of the brain until compensation with increased heart rate is reached.
