Ever roll over in bed

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I roll over in bed at night my heart will speed up for 20-30 seconds and then calm down. It's not a symptom that really bothers me, but I am curious if any of you experience this.

I wonder what causes it. It has never been a symptom that bothers me, it never happened to me before POTS.

Yes, it happens to me and it is something I do not concern myself with. I just chalk it up to the fact that my autonomic nervous system is below average is responding to normal stimuli. Of all my symptoms, this one is low on my list of those that impact my life.

When i first became ill and was bedridden for 4 months, my HR would jump from 110 bpm to over 160 bpm just from reaching for a glass of water or rolling over. I was on a BB for a couple of years and stopped last June. My HR is still elevated when I stand and walk, though I don't feel the big increase when moving around while sitting or laying down anymore. Hope yours improves as well. Best,

Yes, this is one of several nagging symptoms I have--exaggerated heart rate increase when simply moving around in bed. It is sometimes accompanied by a slight feeling of dizziness.

wow! it looks like just about everyone gets this. in the morning when i wake up my heart is a bit tachy around 110. if i roll over or stretch my arms and legs my heart jumps up 20-30 bpm. it generally goes away after i become fully awake.

when i was in the hospital with pots before they new what i was and i wasn't even on meds yet. i had the same problems as JacobyD. if i reached for my water or moved around slightly my heart rate would jump 40-50 beats a minute.

so hang in there your not alone.

Its not a big deal for me. It only jumps 20-30 bpm and then goes back to normal within 30 seconds. It must be an autonomic response/over-response as stated before.

Add me to the list of people who experience this symptom. It often occurs with a morning rollover. I have never measured my HR when it happens so I don't know how much it increases.

I wonder why this isn't a recognized symptoms of POTS. My guess is that it would be considered tachycardia which is already a recognized symptom.

It doesn't exactly fit into the "postural" "orthostatic" part of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome either, now does it?

This happened to me when I rolled over too fast before I was diagnosed and on meds.  Other rapid motions would cause tachy, too, such as pulling off a pullover over my head in one fast move.  Then it would calm down after a short while.

I get this like every freaking day. Good to know I'm not alone in that.
