Are Inverted T wave (abnormal ekg), High Blood Pressure, causes for my chest discomfort, even when doctors give me a clean bill of health?

Greetings,

I recently went to the emergency room with chest discomfort (fluttering/palpitations) High BP 170/119.  (following that time the highest Diastolic number had a reading @ over 125).

During the ER visit an EKG was performed, and it came back abnormal-inverted T waves, high heat rate 124.  My previous ER visits were reviewed for similar symptoms associated when my blood pressure spikes, and those EKGs were either normal, borderline, or abnormal/ T wave inversions.  I'm 43, female, and because my Blood pressure usually goes down by itself without meds to a normal range (below 120/80) I'm not taking meds.  However, I have been given Lopresser (Meterpolol???) to bring it down in the ER after prolonged period of being high.  Some Drs. suggested Lisonopril daily, while other say monitor it only...since the majority of times my BP is normally below 120/80.  

I've had every test:  stress, nuclear 64 slice/CAT, echocardiogram (which detected T waves inversion), etc.  All tests came back negative for cardiac disease.  However, when I have the occasional episodes, which are monthly or every other month...I usually get the chest discomfort and the high blood pressure reading.  I was also told that I have high cholesterol...and if I can't get it down naturally...the primary Dr. wants to put me on Zocor.

Bottom line...are the inverted T waves related to the occasional chest discomfort (fluttering, etc.) and stage 3 high blood pressure spikes?  Please assist me with an answer.  Thanks!
