I have been monitoring my heart rate closely at home. My standing heart rate is 145 and 5 minutes later my resting heart rate is 88. Am I ok?

In brief: 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.

In brief: Holter

I would suggest a physicial examination and a 24 hour Holter monitor to determine heart rate throughout the day.
