High & Low Blood Pressure board

I have always heard that stress can elevate blood pressure but is this normal. When I'm at work under stress I get a panic feeling and will take my bp and it will be 145/99. Once the stress is gone it will go back down to 124/82. Does being freaked out about high blood pressure raise blood pressure. The more I freak out the more I take it and the higher it goes.

Also I am on Toprol XL 50 mg
Synthroid 112
Lexapro 10 mg (for stress)
