Enlarged tonsil brought medical conditions

I have a 16 year old son that was very active in sports. A year ago he got a normal throat infection (- for strep) with a fever for about a week.
Thats when all the other things started. Abnormally high blood pressure,
unusual heart rate. He still has one tonsil enlarged. Have been through
all the tests. Blood tests, cardiologist, ent, Neurologist. His attacks make
his blood pressure and heart rate go high to where he cannot breath and
feels like he is going to pass out. The only answer they can figure is that
he is a teenager and this is anxiety. I do not agree with that he was fine until he got this sickness in his throat and still has an enlarged tonsil. Why are they ignoring this? None of this was there before the infection. Any help?
