It is very difficult to pinpoint the exact cause from the above reasons you've given, but I believe that stress might be one of the main reasons in your case. As such you can try the techniques I've mentioned below to help you out
Well the most popular non medication techniques for lowering blood pressure are:
-Deep Breathing
-Reduce salt intake
-Reduce or stop alcohol intake
-Reduce work and relax
-Stop smoking
I hope this helped
