Orthostatics: Heart rate and heart rate variability is a complex balance. We have pressure sensors that send signals to our brain, that in return sends signals to the heart to speed up or slow down. (sympathetic -fight vs flight or parasympathetic -rest and relax) good hydration and electrolyte intake may help, yet many people still need to transition more slowly... Moing from sitting to standing.

Yes: Unless there is another underlying cause, this condition usually resolves itself over time?
