Sharp Increase in heart rate.
I'm a 20 year old male 6'3'' 220 lbs. I've noticed that my resting heart rate is about 60 when sitting or lying down, and my bp is about 120/80, but when I stand up my heart rate goes up to 94. My bp stays about 120/80. I sometimes get a sort of rushing very brief vertigo. This lasts less than 5 seconds though. Is this normal? Is this something to worry about? If so whats my next step? Schedule an echo-cardiogram?

Pulse rate and blood pressure are suppose to change. Your heart and circulatory system have a different work load between laying down and standing.  Does the vertigo feeling happen every time you stand up or is this something new?

I did the same thing... BP changes minute to minute and if you worry about it the anxiety will play havoc with you...
To be sure, to to a Dr. get a clean bill and stop worrying...Godspeed...

Well thing thing that worried me is the heart rate is increasing dramatically. I understand that my heart rate maybe higher when I'm standing, but I am increasing from the average resting heart rate for a healthy human being to almost double that just by standing.
