Anxious about my blood pressure

So im 25 years old and ever since i had my baby my blood pressure was a little bit up i think that's when i started having bad anxiety and thinking the worst, i cant even take my blood pressure without my heart pounding and hands shaking and sweaty :( im so tired of feeling like this, im on meds btw but i cant stop being anxious about my blood pressure. Has anyone else been through this?

Me. It all started when I was pregnant. They started making a big deal out of my blood pressure and making me think something was wrong and now I can't even go get it checked without it being high and my heart racing. I guess I developed white coat syndrome bc I am able to check it at home while I'm relaxed and it's fine.
