So 2 days ago I was in hospital with a suspected kidney infection. . The doctor was more concerned that my heart rate was far to high for a 20 year old and said I'd have to stay in. Another doctor came and said I could go home and gave me tablets. .. problem is now my heart feels like it's coming out of my chest and I feel so poorly sad

Infection, fever and dehydration can cause an increased HR. I would assume you've had an ECG? Can't stress enough how important it is to drink plenty. Did they give you antibiotics? If you're worried you can phone NHS 24 for advice.

Yeah they gave me an ecg didn't say anythino about it but I'm presuming it was fine & yeah I've got antibiotics

Would have been nice of them to let you know everything was ok, but they let you home so I'd say it was probably fine. Hope you feel better soon!

Are you feeling better than you were 2 days ago? Fever? Sweaty? What was ur BP like. Be aware of sepsis. If you begin feeling really unwell call out of hours straight away.
