You are quite right to be concerned and your son needs to have a better evaluation. The combination of rapid heart rhythms (you must have been told about supraventricular tachycardia or SVT), faintness, nausea, and chest pain and now a high blood pressure is suggestive of other things being wrong with his heart.
