>....was surprised to discover, when the visiting nurse checked my BP, that it plunged when I stood up. I don't know. Maybe my body just adjusted itself to this. I no longer got dizzy.

Definitely, the body does adjust. The postural drop still occurs, but the brain adjusts so that it still functions normally in spite of the sudden drop. As a result you no longer get as dizzy. The phenomenon occurs in others forms of postural (orthostatic) hypotension too. After the condition has been present for a long time, it's often possible to patients with autonomic nervous system dysfunction to tolerate surprisingly large BP drops without symptoms.
