Everyone's BP raises up and down throughout the day naturally, and will even increase over a short period of time due to stress and other factors. Usually if a person takes their vitals too much (health anxiety), it is enough to cause panic, I've been there myself. . . You should rest assured that your doc has placed you on good medication and that you will be alright. To try to naturally lower your blood pressure, eat healthy foods, go take a walk or and exercise that you enjoy, limit your uses of nicotine, alcohol, sodium, etc. And if you have to take your BP and other vitals daily, which is okay while you and your doc are trying to get the best dosage for you on your meds, limit it to just a couple of times daily, make the times specific (not when feeling anxious) and then chart it down to give to your doc during your next appt.
I wish you the best of luck and please do keep us posted :)
