Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is probably reduced blood supply to brain from the fast heart rate.
Sweaty palms again may be from this / or reactive anxiety from the situation
Arrhythmia probably may account for these features...get it need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly or precipitated by a specific activity like exercise, one needs Holter or event monitor.
Condition like Pheochromocytoma can cause episodic fast rate, high pressure, sweaty palms. There are blood tests to estimate the adrenal hormones or their metabolites...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
