Hello and thank you for using HCM.
I carefully read your question and I understand your concern.
I will explain you something and give you my opinion.

We talk about hypertension if we have mean values that exceeds 140/90 mmHg.
Hypertension is divided in two big groups: Essential or idiopathic Hypertension without an identifiable cause and secondary hypertension meaning that is a secondary cause of it.

Essential hypertension is a chronic disease. It has not a definite cure but it should be treated all live with medicines.
Secondary hypertension, usually in young ages, might have different causes like renal, endocrine, cardiovascular anomalies ect. Sometimes finding and resolving this problems might resolve the hypertension.

So, in your case if I was your treating doctor I will recommend some examinations to diagnose the kind of hypertension. I will recommend an electrocardiogram, a cardiac echo, a holter pressure monitoring, a full blood analyze, creatinine, urinary catecholamins and abdominal echo to check renal situation.

Only after this examinations we can know what we are dealing with and how to treat and control it.

Hope I was helpful.
Best regards.
