It is highly: unlikely that you have had structural change in six months in the absence of trauma, infarction, infection or toxic drug exposure. Orthostatic hypotension with physiological sinus tachycardia may represent autonomic issues which are cyclical. This can also account for your holter findings. Maintain good hydration. Beta blockers might be useful. Expect good weeks and bad lifelong.
