Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

An overlay of anxiety from the recent episode is very likely.
Also side effects of your drugs should be considered.
Discuss with your Internist during your next appointment - you may need minor alteration of drugs or dosage.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
