Most possibly such an acute reaction suggests a allergic reactioin. Please calll the Doctors office , they may need to see you and or prescribe a short term Steroids.

Highly unlikely. You need to be examined by your doctor for an explanation of your symptoms. I assume the stress test was negative, and if so congratulations.
