Are you diabetic? Since how long you are having this problem? Is this hypertension due to mental stress or coronary artery disease? You may be also getting your menopause.

You must consult a cardiologist as early as possible. If you blood pressure is well controlled by anti-hypertensive medications, then the cause of the other symptoms must be identified. You must take this seriously.
