You check it for codes? Try unplugging each sensor to see if it smooths out starting with the map sensor, unplug and plug it back in. Sounds like a bad map sensor though, could be a vacuumleak that wouldn't exactly explain the the ability to idle back down.

check the fuel pressure regulator. My 92 did the same thing. you will have fuel coming out of the vacuum line on the back side of the throttle body.
