hi,
First you need to monitor your blood pressure and make a chart of it. bp should be taken at rest of atleast 10 min.
Also consume low salt diet, avoid smoking if any.
if bp is still high we need to find the cause.
Following investigation should be done.
1. ultrasound Doppler of renal artery
2. Sr cortisol
3. 24 hr Urinary metanephrines
4. renal function test
