I use a standing desk at work and think this helps with my fatigue. Would I be DQ'd if I even tried this? Is it worth clarifying or just trying?

Woah...I never even heard of such situation...as long as you do not violate the terms and conditions of the test..then I think you can...on the other hand though...it is specified that you should get up from your table only with proctor's permission.

Hi manimgoindowndown,

No, you are not allowed to take the GMAT while standing. In fact, the only time that you're supposed to be standing is when you are either entering or exiting the Computer Lab. At all other times during the Exam, you are expected to sit in your chair in front of your work station.
