Is it normal for heart rate to increase when you get up suddenly?
From 60-70 bpm to 80-90 bpm? Or could this indicate a problem with the heart or hormones like hyperthyroidism??

With the rapid shift in position your blood pressure is dropping (this is related to "orthostatic hypotension") & the increased heart rate is a compensation to increase your blood pressure. Is it normal? It probably happens to most people to a certain extent. It depends how radical it gets. 60 to 100 BPM is considered a normal heart rate, so yours, at 80 to 90, is not out of normal parameters.

Yes it's normal, happens to all of us.

It is normal. Any exertion increases the heart rate.
