Permanent damage from hbp meds?

I was diagnosed with hbp 2 months ago. I was on procardia, but switched after a month because of a very scary side effect. My heart rate increased dramatically and I noticed that my heart seemed to struggle, pound, and beat faster whenever I layed on my stomach or back. Now I can't sleep because of these symptoms. Before the onset of these symptoms I had an ekg and it was fine. And before the meds, the problem was non existent. The questions are: has anyone else experienced this and is the damage permanent? Desperately need a reply, I don't know how to go on without sleeping normally. I think life with uncontrolled bp was better than this. At least I could sleep.
