change in heart rate upon standing
dws
My resting heart rate is 70. When I stand up, it goes to 104 to 110. Is that normal? It remains over 100 as long as I am standing. It drops as soon as I sit or lie down

I don't think it should go up more than 10 bpm or so.  Yours sounds high...have you been tested for P.O.T.S.?  You should definitely have this checked out by your Dr.

It could be POTS. that's what it sounds like as LindaTx says....normally dr's go by 10/20/10 rule - your bp can go up or down by 10/20 (120/80) and HR by 10 but some dr's won't dx pots unless it's a 30 pt increase or more and some of us ANS (autnomic nervous system) patients won't get a dx and help even with that increase :(

some dr's just don't understand ans dyfunction or dysatuonomia - here's our forum for ans issues: http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Dysautonomia-Autonomic-Dysfunction/show/266

here's some info on ANS; maybe you have other symptoms also? http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/Neurological-Disorders/Autonomic-Dysfunction-FAQ/show/181?cid=196

when I'm back on my pc I'll send you a link to take your bp/hr according to Vanderbilt; I think it's after 10 minutes of rest, then you take your bp/hr on a monitor at 1,3,5, 10 minutes then standing 1,3,5,10 min but I can't remember exactly.

Here's a list of doctors and clinics who specialize in Dysautnomia and ANS issues like POTS http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/Neurological-Disorders/Dysautonomia-Specialists/show/717?cid=196
