Hello and welcome to HCM,

Thank you for your query.

A heart rate of 90-95 is still considered to be normal. These could be palpitations or some other cardiac presentation.

It would be best to consult a cardiologist and get your ECG (EKG) and an echocardiography done, to rule out any underlying conditions.

This presentation could also be normal, and just be a result of change in posture and a slight change in blood pressure or just stress.

But, it is always best to discuss all new symptoms with your doctor who can also investigate it further.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
