I can understand that you would be concerned for your health, but, as you said, your BP is high when you take it or when you go to either the doctor's office or to the ER. This indicates that it's really situational but I can also understand that you would like to be able to be a bit calmer.
Chronic stress is what can cause medical illness, but I didn't see that you indicated you are under chronic stress. I would suggest, however, that you begin to learn some ways to help yourself remain calm. I don't know if you have regular medical checkups, but that would be a good start.
Once you know that everything is okay medically, then you can begin using some self-help techniques. Since you are still a minor, I would suggest that you discuss this with your parents and that there there should be a discussion between them and your treating physician.
I hope that you have made your parents aware of your concern since it would be helpful to have their understanding and support.
