Anxiety causes a 85 to 100+ heart rate but blood pressure always 100/60 to 87/44... should i be worried?

No: Anxiety alone will change your numbers, and if you focus on them, can make you more anxious. Those numbers are fine. I recommend you not worry about them, and focus on ways to calm yourself down if anxious. Avoid all caffeine too.
