Do not take your BP: If you have an irregular beat, the BP machines may not be accurate. Also, measuring BP too often when it is not needed will create more anxiety and that in turn worsen bp. If your doctors says it is normal, you may have to control anxiety better. You need help. Do not let anxiety and hopelessness control your life as you sound like a healthy 23 yo. You are also taking supplements you don't need.
