Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum but stressed and trying to get some insight to determine if anyone has experienced similar symptoms. I noticed my heart rate becomes pretty high when standing three weeks ago. Went to the doctor had an EKG, 24 hour heart monitor and blood work done. Blood work determined my thyroid was HYPERactive. Heart monitor normal with highest rate at 160bpm. Doctor told me she thinks it's due to thyroid every time I stand. Last night, I stood up to walk into my house and my heart rate spiked to 189bpm. Called on call doctor (different doctor than my regular doctor) and she reviewed heart monitor again and diagnosed me with a heart arrhythmia. I'm so confused, one doctor is saying no arrhythmia and another is saying there is one? She stayed thyroid or POTs would never cause a spike to 189bpm. Is this true? What has your highest heart rates been? Is it all day long even while sitting? Mine is only while standing. Thanks!
