In brief: Chk thyroid status

Fast hr's in the setting of hyperthyroidism imply that thyroid levels might still be high.
If graves disease was treated w radioactive ablation of thyroid and you are on replacement hormone it might imply that your replacent doses i too high. If the graves is a recent diagnosis and you are on anti thyroid meds like ptu (propylthiouracil) you might need additional help with beta blockers to help both bp/hr.

In brief: Not your heart.

Chest pain could be due to variety of things but not likely to be related to your heart.
I suspect they told you that when you were discharged. Would make more sense to look at your esophagus / gerd and your chest wall / muscles / cartilage to find a source.
