You should add a ? about our resting rate... Mine is around 60, its just so crazy that we can actually double our rates just from standing...

I agree knowing your standing heart rate, unless it is very high, is only half the picture. My resting heart rate is in the low 50's and has gone lower. Though my standing was going to 100-115's before diagnosis, when you look at the rise from the 50's to 110, that is a huge swing.

My sitting hr in 90's didn't ever attract attention. My point if you start in the 50's and only go to the 90's that still is a big rise, and can be missed.

I still every morning before I move or sit up check my bp/hr will supine, then I have my baseline for the day. Though day to day it is pretty consistant on waking. I just wish it was that perfect when I stood. I used to get brady and hypo during sleep, so that is better now.

I updated to add the resting heart rate. I am actually kind of shocked how low most peoples standing heart rates are. I wasn't expecting that. Are those of you below 100 on medication? I am on two meds right now and my standing heart rate is still around 100.

Thanks for adding. You'd also be surprised at how low some of our resting heart rates are too. Yes my vote is with labetalol on board, but we are also treating my immune and autoimmune conditions and those treatments have also improved it. I was much worse before treatment. Many of the long timers here have been on treatment for awhile.

If you'd like to you could also add that question, are these heart rates with or without treatment.

I don't know your medical history or symptoms. I also had trouble with medications lowering me I went through a bunch of blood pressure meds that my body would overcome eventually, because my blood was pooling and my body was trying to force blood up to the brain by raising my blood pressure and constricting my blood vessels to do so. I then would become hypotensive/brady when supine.

Labetalol is a short acting alpha beta so it effects both responses.

Mine varies too much to fit into this. Without meds, it seems that my typical HR is 50s-60s lying down flat, 60s-70s lying down propped up, 70s-80s sitting up, and when I stand up it goes up into the 90s and 100s. Now that I'm on oodles of antihistamines, it doesn't seem to go up when I stand up.

On meds: lying down is usually around 68-72, while standing is usually around 110-115.

Without meds: lying down can vary from 60-90, standing will push it up to around 135-150.

It depends on whether with or without beta blockers. In the AM before I've taken a beta blocker, my standing is 120-130. After my bp is high enough to take a bb, it eventually goes down to 90-100. My resting hr is about 60-80, very variable.

resting usually 65-80, varies. sitting 80-100 varies. standing 110 - high 120's. Sometimes even sitting in 120's on random odd days. I'm not on any bb meds. & like Batik my standing hr much improved when I started antihistamines, also improving my bp swings. It used to be 140's to 160's standing in the a.m.

It depends on how long I stand. I am going with 3-5 mins usually 130-150

Now with clonidine it's been 110-130

Laying 65-80

sitting 70-135

standing 120-180 varies greatly without any precipitating factors (that Im aware of)

Not on any BB's due to BP not being able to be kept up, this is after treatment with meds. and methods listed below

My resting heart rate would be in the mid-30s except I now have a pacemaker that keeps it at 60 or slightly above. Standing can vary between systolics of 74 to 104!

This was much very much higher 6 months ago and higher even on Propranolol 80 BID, but as I have been running and tapering Propranolol I keep standing HR under 100. When it goes over I back up and increase B-blocker a little. Running seems to help lower it somehow. I never passed out from my POTS ( hyper type ) but it has been very hard building up running and still very slow compared to a not POTS person. I am now on 3.75mg Propranolol LA and HR has crept back above 100 so I will probably go back to 3.75 BID, just trying to see if it will go back down, as I feel close to getting off Propranolol.

before bb resting was 100-110 standing was 130-145ish.

on bb resting 70's-80's standing 90's-100. However, it takes very little moving around to get my hr well over 100.

During good days standing is 120-125 anf resting is in the 70's.

If I don't get enough sleep have any sort of infection, or have not had enough fluids standing is 155+ and resting is 90's.
