@BakerBee16:  Oh honey, where do you live? We are the same person!

POTS is generally for the elderly…but I have the same issue, when I stand up my HR shoots up to 20bpms higher…but honestly it’s SUPPOSED TO!

When you stand up, your bp drops…so your bodies response to push the blood back up to the brain is to make your heart beat faster.  It’s normal. I feel pressure in my head when I stand up after sitting for too long, or go from laying to sitting (sometimes).

I also have pressure when I bend forward. 

Why not ask for a holter? It can’t hurt!

@BellaDee:  it’s supposed to shoot up but then it goes back to normal.

this is why when doctors do orthostatic blood pressures (laying, sitting, then standing), it’s a few minutes between each of them.

in my experience, I have seen many teenage girls/young women with POTS.

@li612:  Exactly…I’m in a constant battle with my cardiologist about me having POTS, but he hasn’t tested me by having me stand up/sit down/lay down..etc.


I tested myself back in July and I was 123/79 with a HR of 87 sitting.. then I stood up and quickly pressed the button and it was 98/77 with a HR of 106…and I felt an instant pressure in my head and throat.

I know the difference isn’t horrible, and some studies say it’s 30 BPM , but i’ve had that as well.. for instance, this morning when I woke up I stood up and checked my pulse, it was 112.

I wish they would take it more seriously but he isn;t…my holter showed tachycardia and even bardycardia (slow heart rate) my vasovagal nerve is a little screwed up I think.

I never used to be that way either, this has only been the last maybe 3-4 years.
