blood pressure

I am a pretty high strung person and worry constantly that something is wrong with me. I am taking 5mg of Enalapril for high blood pressure which has never been higher than 152/105 and up until yesterday it was running from 117/69 to 125/82 for the most part. The temperature here has been really dry with no rain and I have been stuffed up for several days and right now the temps outside is like 104 and yesterday my bp started running as high as 142/98 with it being 137/92 right now. I get into a panic when i see my bp anywhere near 130 on top and 85 on the bottom and then it will get higher. I then panic and will check it as much as 10 times in an hour. Am I causing my bp to go up?
