Hey everyone, New issue, can't be anxiety

So I'm getting These New issues now on top of the tachycardia while eating, two days ago I got in a bad fight with my ex and I smoked two cigarettes back to back, then felt instantly sick, I started having a panic slightly from feel dizzy, haven't smoked in two months and I wanted to throw up... Well after an hour or so I calmed down but had this horrid headche that evening, so I Went to bed... So I wake up the next day and head to school and just happened to have my BP machine in the car, when I left class I felt like someone was pressing on both sides of my head and felt like my head was going to burst so when u sat in the car I took my bp, it said 152 over 102 and I kinda freaked but not too bad because I've seen higher during panic attacks, but at this moment I wasn't panicing, was actually calm lol. I started breathing slowly and relaxed and took it again 5 mins later and it said 142 over 100 with a pulse of 78.....

Now ever since then I notice if I walk or talk it will jump this high every time, I am now taking it more not only because I am having tachycardia while eating but now this and the last thing I want is to have a stroke, heart attack, or cardiac arrest....

I Went to my doctor this morning and she rushes me thru saying it's all in my head without even taking my BP to see and it's a month waiting list to change docs, I am honestly a little scared in that regard that I'm stuck with this idiot until then.

Now before that panic and cigarettes it was normal even when walking, some of you have seen my standing BP numbers and they're low normally, so this sudden increase for the last 3 days, could it be from the nicotine? The panic I dismiss because I'm not feeling anxious, I seen a bp reading of 145 over 108 today and didn't freak out lol so that tells you not anxious really but just concerned, what are your all opinions until I see a doc....

Also my BP is normal on sitting or laying down, so if it was anxiety, it would be elevated even while sitting but it's not, so this is why I'm stumped.
