Sounds like white coat hypertension. The stress of going to the doctor (especially given your obsession with the numbers) likely raised you BP AND your BG. Keep monitoring at home.

I, too, had blood pressure issues. It was recommended to me to eat more foods with potassium (prunes, avocados, etc.) on a daily basis. This small change for me has helped a lot (I now completely off BP meds!) Good luck!

Is it mainly through diet, exercise, stress free living, not being anxious, etc...? What are some foods to help with blood pressure? Is there a quick way of lowering it if one ate something to spike the high blood pressure?

Eating a clean diet, improving digestion, reducing stress, increasing sleep, supplementing fish oils and GABA...that's a good start down the right road.
