Brief Answer:
Heart problems and thyroid gland dysfunction to consider.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Symptoms you describe seems to be related to the rapid changes in the blood pressure and Heart rhythm, then a neurological condition.

Even if you were examined one year ago about cardiac problems, I think it is necessary to get reevaluated about any blood pressure or heart rhythm issues.

A 24 hours monitoring of your heart rate and blood pressure ( Holter monitoring ) is necessary for this purpose.

Another condition to consider in your case is increased thyroid gland function.

Blood tests to assess the thyroid gland function are necessary as well.

I'd request you to discuss with your primary care Doctor about getting evaluated further about these conditions.

Please feel free to get back to me after having done above-mentioned tests.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
