Don’t know for sure but when I was going thru a bad time several year ago, my doctor prescribed anxiety meds, and my hard to control BP went down to normal ranges.

Anxiety & Hypertension. Is there a relationship?
Anxiety creates Fight or Flight. Bio response is to Increase blood flow to limbs to the brain - ready to fight or flee or both. Flight can have a long time line meaning prolonged hyper-vigilance. Fight is a shorter skirmish (hopefully) after which blood pressure returns to normal. This is my theory.
