Our expert says:
High Blood pressure usually isn't difficult to diagnose - one measures the BP. Now, except for a rare situation where someone has raised BP due to a rare tumour, most cases of what was called Essential Hypertension just arise, for no specific or identifiable reason, just like most disorsers. And though I understand that you'd like to know a reason, most of the time most of us suffer various diseases and disorders without ever knowing the reason for it.
Surely at this stage, the priority should be finding the most effective way to treat and control the raised BP, rather than spending large sums on many different doctors, searching for a cause that is likely to never be discovered ?
If they are continuing to hunt for a zebra without properly treating the identified high BP, I think that's rather irresponsible and unwise. Insist that they treat it NOW. Maybe in a year or so it might become worthwhile to hunt a bit once more, as if there is some so far unrecognized cause, it might become detectable by then.
I think it would benefit you greatly, and probably help to control the raised BP, for you to see a psychologist ofering Cognitive-behaviour Therapy (CBT)which would help you regain proper controol over your emotional responses to this BP problem.
