Dear Gary
You need to urgently discuss this salt craving with the doctor who is treating you for the high bp. It is dangerous to consume salt, table salt and spices that contain sodium chloride if you suffer from high blood pressure as it can exacerbate the condition and also affect your kidneys. The dr may have to do some tests to see what is causing this craving.
Best regards
