High blood pressure, suggested no sodium, no chips, sick, dizzy, no energy. Recommendations?

I just found out I have high blood pressure (180/112) and my doctor put me on a very strict "no sodium" diet. He also told me I cannot have chips, my daily mountain dew, and diet or regular sodas. its my third day on this diet, I feel sicker. I have no energy, I am dizzy, I feel like my balance is out of order, even my ear feels like there is a seashell on it. Can someone help me? I am a white, 40 year old female. I am an avid runner, 5'4" tall and I weigh approx. 120lbs. No one in my family has high blood pressure or heart disease. Please help me

Hi, thank you for posting at HCM.

To control you blood pressure you should not eat a limitation amount of those foods: sodium, animal fat, carbohydrates, egg yolk(2-3 eggs a week), meat(2-3 times a week).
You should a lot of fruits and vegetables. Use olive oil, nuts(decrease LDL-bad fat).
You need a Glycemic Index Test, lipid test, azotemia and creatinemi to control your kidney functions.

I wish you a quick recovery.
