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.

I'm not worried about bp my bp is healthy but my 40 odd bpm difference from standing still vs sitting down is whats worrying me.
