You have anxiety: Follow a healthy diet, avoid alcohol, caffeine, and drugs. Exercise is very helpful. Please see your mental health specialist regularly, you can work through it. It can get better and even go away as you get older. There are a lot of hormones circulating in your body since you hit puberty. If it helps, go get that blood pressure monitor and prove to yourself that your blood pressure is just fine.
