Are there neurological conditions that can cause nightly episoduc sinus tachycardia up to 180 bpm?

Autonomic dysfunctio. Autonomic dysfunction (AD) can cause rapid heartrates & blood pressure though going much beyond about 100-120 would be something that I should think is rare. Getting to 180 BPM for AD is tougher. The condition of Postural Orthostatic Hypotension can also get accelerations in heart rate but again, faster than about 120 is probably tougher just based on POTS.

Absolutely, such as. bad dreams; fears avoided hidden within instead of confronted. Heart rate is split-second controlled from brain 24/7. As embodied Soul?Mind?Brain?Body creatures, a common self-distraction maneuver some use to avoid facing larger fears is: focus on body reaction(s) as if they are the problem when actually just body expressions/symptoms of emotions within mind.

Can a reaction to mobic cause sinus tachycardia? What why's can sinus tachycardia be helped without taking meds?

Can sinus tachycardia cause lightheadedness? I just found out on the 15th. It's only been going on for at least a week and only when I go up stairs.

The lightheadedness. you are experiencing is probably due to low blood pressure and the sinus tachycardia is a physiological response to this. Not the other way around. Sinus tachycardia does not cause lightheadedness. These findings may be suggestive of autonomic dysfunction or a disorder called POTS (positional orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.) Ask your health care provider if you are being evaluated for this. Read more...

Can daily recurrent sinus tachycardia episodes of 150-170/pm eventually cause cardiomyopathy?

If persistent. Not if they're sporadic but only if persistent (meaning day and night for weeks on end). Sinus tachycardia will slow at night when you sleep and won't lead to any heart damage. If your hr is persistently elevated at >150, it's likely not sinus tachycardia but another type of tachycardia and that can cause tachycardia mediated cardiomyopathy. Read more...
