Orthostatic: For some reason you are orthostatic - when heart rate increases with sitting or standing up. This is usually associated with low blood volume - bleeding, dehydration (diarrhea, vomiting) or internal volume loss (fluid in the belly usually due to low albumine state). If this is sudden (started within last week) - seek urgent care. If that been going on for a long time, see your doctor.
