Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per the description, the condition is due to secondary changes from underlying hypertension super added by stress.

I would recommend to do regular deep breathing exercises, YOGA, walking in fresh air for best results.

Take care.
