Post Is this a heart problem

Hi, This is my first time here and posting a message. I need HELP PLEASE. Last Saturday around midnight I started with a strange sensation in my chest. Then I got a killer headache. BP went to 260/165. was shaking abd hands turned purple. Ended Up in Hospital from Sat night until Monday night at 9:30pm. They did ct scan, chest exray, EKG, stress test, blood heart enzymes and I was hooked up to a heart moniter the whole time I was there. All the tests came back normal. Wed night it happened again at around 4:00am. Last night again, 12:00am, my BP went to 260/140 and my head was pounding.By 12:30 MY bp WAS BACK TO AROUND NORMAL 135/80 well kinda normal. I am on now lotensin (have been for about 4 years) I was on Norvasc but Dr changed that to cozaar about 1 month ago. While in hospital they changed the cozaar to atenol(sp). I am also on zoloft 100mg a day. PLEASE help has anyone had this happen to them?? supposedly I am normal HA please let me know I am really scared. thank you
