Took My Hr While Laying Down And Then Standing...

Hi! Yesterday I took your advice and got my wrist cuff out and made sure to take my BP/HR when I woke up before I even got out of bed and directly after upon standing. The results were this:

Lying Down: 89/52 with 56HR

Upon Standing: 84/53 with 88HR

Now I took it again later on in the afternoon and all I had was a 10bpm increase in HR. So my question is can it just happen in the morning? I dont even know what a "normal" persons HR does in the morning. Maybe I should have my husband do it so I can see what his is! On another note, I saw a new chiropractor who did some really different (from what I'm used to) adjustment and I slept a 100 times better last night. He says there are these specific numbers of vertebrae that are directly linked to the nervous system...any of you had improvement after seeing a chiropractor? He used some sort of percussion instrument.

Have a great Tuesday!

Thanks so much!

Definition of POTS is increase in HR of 30 bpm or more from sitting to standing--so it is possible, but only a specialist can diagnose. It is not unusual for this response to only occur at certain times of day or only some days. A specialist would likely look at other symptoms too, especially for determining treatment.

Thanks M-to-G! I was wondering about this and so I thought I would post it. Back when this first all started I would have that feeling all day and night. I am often awakened by racing heart around the same time each day. That gets old! Nice to hear your input! KC

I saw a chiropractor, and he adjusted my spine. My neck was out of alignment after getting whiplash, and my back was a little messed up. He put my spine back into alignment, but I never had any improvements in my dysautonomia symptoms.
