Hello,

First of all, did you see a cardiologist? Also, I want to ask you do you have some edemas anywhere on the body? Have you checked your urine or your kidneys? My suggestion is to see a cardiologist for echocardiography, Holter test (24hour recording of heart activity) and maybe nephrologists in order to exclude kidney reason for hypertension.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Krasimir Kraev
