Anxiety can cause the blood pressure to increase. Were you feeling anxious at the dentist? Or anxious about getting your blood pressure? You really are fine. It's your anxiety you need to focus on. Ever try therapy? Also, chest pain and anxiety go hand in hand. You know it's not your heart because you've had multiple tests done.
