In brief: Orthostatism

Well... Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome has an origin in the autonomic nervous system and is unrelated to anxiety.
A general anxiety disorder is not a cause of orthostatic tachycardia.The two entities while unrelated can theoretically coexist in the same individual.

In brief: General anxiety

Hello, general anxiety may be a nidus that may worsen tis particular condition and need further continued treatment.
Many times people simply forget to breathe in and out when they panic. However, this is not my specialty.
