Heart tests: An echo shows if your heart is enlarged or if wall muscle is damaged or if the valves are not functioning right. Stress test checks for blockage in blood vessels to the heart. Sounds like you may need a holter monitor to check the rhythm and then treatment of your elevated rhythm and thyroid tests to rule out over active thyroid. Best wishes.
