Sweating of face and palms,rapid heart rate?

Last sunday when driving my car ,i had sweating of face and palms.My heart was beating rapidly.I parked and drank water and try to remain calm.But heart continues to beat fast.Called my friend to take me home...rested and in evening went to urgent care facility.They took ECG/blood test and the result is normal.No medication prescribed. I had a similar episode last november 2006.I consulted cardiologist and he says its panic attack.No medication. Does it comes on and off like this ?.OR should i go for getting CT scan done for stroke or is it because of hyperthyroid(blood test is normal).Iam male of 33 years old with family. My PCP is asking to take beta blocker (TOPOROL-XL) for life. Any suggesstions

Why are they wanting to give you meds when they have no diagnosis. I have had panic attacks like that and they do come on out of nowhere. frightning... I suggest second opinion. and why for life...? what arent they telling you? Go for nice long walks in the eve. get more sleep. and try to relax something is bothering you wheather you realize it or not. I would ask for a MRI if you are that concerned just for peace of mind. I hope you feel better.
