In brief: Sinus tach

Inappropriate sinus tachycardia is basically when your heart rate increases inappropriately when changing positions or even at rest.
It is also minimal effort causes an exaggerated heart response. So basically, based on the definition alone of ist, yes it can be worse even when standing.
