When it gets stuck on high idle then you shut car off and restart will go back to normal idle for a while but then will get stuck again. I am having to shut car off frquently when in route to get it to stop....getn worse

sounds like an idle control valve. you need to have a good shop properly diag it for you to verify the failure and pin point the failed part.
