working out and sinus tachycardia

Hi all-

I'm new here trying to get some advice while Im waiting to see my cardiologist. I am 27 years old and have POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycaridia Syndrome) basically sinus tachycardia and my heart skips. I dont remember the exact diagnoses for the heart skipping but it was something my doctor said he wasnt gonna pay much attention to it till it bothered me in my daily life. Anyhow- I recently started working out 5 days a week. I started out on the treadmill going three miles and my heart rate stayed in 150s at aboout 3 mph... It was hard for me to burn calories cause my heart beat so fast it wore me out too quick. I recently moved to the bike and can go 14 miles. It helps a lot. I want to start working out harder though. Is it very dangerous for my heart to be really fast for long periods of time or is it okay because its just for an hour then a calm it down?
