In 1995 and then in 1997 Dr. Peter Rowe was the first doctor to call attention to the orthostatic intolerance present in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and fibromyalgia. Since then this doctor/researcher has published are reported widely on orthostatic intolerance, chronic fatigue syndrome, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
Most recently he introduced the idea of "neuromuscular strain" to the chronic fatigue syndrome field.
Dr. Rowe runs a clinic for adolescents with these diseases at Johns Hopkins University.
