this is one of the first symptoms i ever noticed. when i brought it up to the specialist i was seeing at the time, he said it was fairly common and related to the transition from the parasympathetic to the sympathetic nervous system (i.e. coming out of sleep). i find it goes away if i get up slowly...

I have this problem as well- I try to drink a huge glass of gatorade or water as soon as I get up, and within an hour or so it seems to help. I take my beta blocker before bed at night, which not only helps avoid some of the drowsiness but also helps with the tachycardia in the mornings. And like Justin said, getting up slowly can help a great deal as well = )

Thank you for all of the replies. My heart rate has been very elevated in the last few days and will last almost all day long. I'm still taking the cacium clannel blocker but it is not working at all!! I am dissapointed in this. Anyways, I called my doctor, but have not heard back from him yet. I think I will have to discontinue this new med, it seems like it may be making my heart rate even faster. This is all so frustrating...

Hi all,

With me the weirdest thing happens. When I firstly get up every morning my heart is on the 80s and 90s range (even when I stand!!!). It is really amazing because every morning I think that PoTs has finally left me. As soon as I eat something or start getting active (whatever is sooner) my heart rate is "restored" to the usual and disturbing 130s and 140s range. And of course my high hops are crashed!! I keep hoping though every single day. PoTs is a mysterious syndrome after all...

With Best Wishes to All

Hi,

My heart rate is also elevated when I wake up in the morning. My HR is about 100 then and when I stand up it jumps to about 160 . Anytime I am still for a long time I have that problem. I also benefit from drinking a lot of fluids like the others said. I also wake up about 30 minutes earlier in the morning to get my body going. :)

Hi,

I used to have this problem in the morning. I stopped it by waking up 2 hours before I actually had to get up and drinking a glass of water, eating a cracker and taking a beta blocker at that time. I would keep the water, cracker and bb on my nightstand so I never had to get out of bed. Then I would go back to sleep. When I'd wake up I'd feel good.

I don't have to do this anymore...I feel pretty good now when I wake up and sometimes even forget to take my beta blocker. So hang in there...this too can improve.
