*raises hand* Yep!

Sometimes I fight through it, moving around does help, like changing positon.

Have you looked up POTS - Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome - that's bascially what's going on but whether that's thyroid or adrenals or what I don't know  0031

I had this problem. From a hormonal perspective, aldosterone and renin are the hormones you should be looking at. Have you had your levels tested?

Also do you have a BP monitor? You can test your BP and pulse lying down and then test again in a standing position. If you have a drop in BP - this indicates postural hypotension.
