What causes high blood pressure and how is it treated ?

My doctor has been treating me for high bp for several months and i have even been hospitalized twice because of it.. they have changed meds several times and still my bp is running high.. I have told my doctor several time that I was diagnosed with restrictive lung disease several years ago, and nothing has been checked on my lungs. my average bp is 170/110 .. should i be concerned that the doctor isnt checking my lungs as a cause for the high bp?

Hi,
Your case should be evaluated as it does not respond with the treatment.
You consult your specialist with your old reports of your lung problem and discuss your case.
Following investigations are to be done if they have not carried out.
ECG, blood sugar,lipid profile,X ray chest.
One can change medicine for control of bp after evaluation of the case.
Ok and bye.
