Can a broken heart cause medical issues?

My boyfriend broke-up with me and now he is goin out with this other disgusting girl. After I found out they were goin out I went to the doctor s to get my physical for school. When the doctor took my blood pressure it was really high 140/90 and I m only 14. and that is high for an adult.I have never had high blood pressure before so I was wondering if the fact that my heart was completely broken, could have caused my blood pressure to get high???
