Suggest treatment for high BP

Hi, I am 47, 4 11, 208lbs. I have high blood pressure and medicine has been changed thrice(side affects). Lisinopril after three years, ziac after about a year and now losartan. I am a african american female and I have pretty large breasts. My gallbladder was removed about a year ago Ive had very bad pain since. Some time ago my sleep was disrupted by hearing my pulse in my right ear. Along with this I started waking feeling like I wasn t breathing properly, and now I am waking up over in the late night or early morning with a rapid heart beat that I can feel and hear in my right ear. I also feel some paused or delayed heart beats but these are not just at night. Oh yeah, I have reflux/digestion problems. Seems like I m just falling apart. With no medical insurance it seems next to impossible to get answers.
