I go to the dentist for a cleaning every 6 months. Every time I went in the past 3 years, my blood pressure would be taken and would be a little higher. I am just into my 70s and this is supposed to be the age where we can start having problems. When it got over 140, I started taking grape seed extract (400mg capsule) 3 times a day and that worked to brig it down. I discovered later that something was causing the high blood pressure however. I used to drink one 8 oz cup of coffee with some milk in the morning. I have a big sweet tooth, so I had been adding 5 packets of Sweet and Low to the sugar to help sweeten the coffee. For some reason, I decided to stop using the Sweet and Low. My pressure returned to normal from then on. Haven't had any problems since. If you are using Sweet and Low, you might eliminate it and see if that is at least part of your problem. I would suspect other artificial sweeteners also.
