No medical profession regularly responds in this forum. And I am not a medical professional.

From seeing commends from others in this forum from people that have had sudden changes in BP they where often caused by adrenal gland problems or blocked kidney artery.

You might want to look for hypertension specialist.

If you can find one in your area contact a local teaching hospital or medical school.

Remember that you are your own best doctor. Do things like keeping a diary of when you have symptoms and what you where doing and what you had eaten.

Also you need to ask questions of your doctor. What is this test for? And if he says that the results are "normal" ask exactly what that means. What it rules out and what other tests are needed.
