Hi The answers are yes - it could be and yes - it can do ! But you should know that stress can cause all of the other symptoms you describe without causing a rise in your blood pressure. Go get a check up from your doctor who will be able to run some tests and put your mind at rest. You'll find more information about blood pressure treatment options at Hope that helps
