    This goes back to the discussions on vertigo/balance problems. Ramsay mentioned vertigo right at the beginning, and this is the second study in a week to mention disequilibrium.

    What's interesting is that it reaffirms that the OI in ME is something different to POTS. Obviously, some people might have POTS as a co-morbidity, but the OI looks like it's something else.

    They don't appear to have come to conclusions about hypoperfusion definitely being the cause, although state it as a possible mechanism (I think--without seeing the full paper it's hard to know their conclusion on this).
