Sorry to hear you were in the hospital; what did you go in for? I may have missed that part :P
Stress, anxiety, tension etc can all be detrimental on your body, you need to find a medication that helps that and also find what helps you relax and stop those problems. It sounds easy right? not so much when you're experiencing them; I've been there and used Lexapro for a month to help calm my nerves after 3 procedures in 4 days that left me with a pacemaker/icd at age 42.
I suffer both high HR and low HR; I was at the dr a few weeks ago and my resting HR was over 125 and had been for a bit, he asked me about it and told me to watch it. HR's go up and down as well as bp to compensate for daily activities; it's when it continually goes over certain limits that they tend to worry.
My HR will go from 140 and drop to 50 in a blink; make me pass out and my heart stop. There are some times my HR will be resting 60 daily and then I clean or walk around, shop etc and it's back to 140+ again, I can't catch my breath and get chest pains.
Medications help alot of people with bp/hr issues, but they just make me feel worse. You need to ask about a Tilt Table Test or HUTT; same thing - some abbreviate it that way. It will show everything that's going on with your fluctuating bp/hr and if it's dangerous and should be addressed.
