Low heart rate, on and off chest pain shortness of breath

I’ve been worried about my heart like crazy. I’ve been in and out of the hospital all month due to shortness of breath and chest pain. It all started about a month ago I decided to try smoking weed for the first time and I had a really bad panic attack. My next few days after the panic attack went as normal as any other days, I go to work as usually but then I start getting dizzy/blacking out and having chest pain. I’ve been to the hospital atleast 5 times since then and they can’t find a problem. The doctor at the hospital said I had a irregular heartbeat and I should go to a cardiologist. My cardiologist did a echocardiogram, stress test and has me on a 3 week halter monitor and still hasn’t found anything unusual. It’s really frustrating me because I am feeling all theses (red flags) for like heart attacks or heart failure but the doctors keep saying my vitals are ok. I went and got a Fitbit trying to make a healthy lifestyle change and find my heart rate drops in low 40s while sleep and as low as 52 while awake. I don’t feel as if any of my symptoms are related to anxiety at all this has been going on for a long time now and I can’t seem to get sleep. I’m on the verge of losing my job and it seems that all is falling down. I have a 1 year old son and I’m extremely worried about his future do to my circumstances please help I’m on day 17/21 on my halter monitor and all 17 days have felt like hell.
