    I wake up 3 to 5 days a week with bp's consistently of 200+/140+ if it will even register on my BP machine. I've been diagnosed with malignant Hypertension for 10 years had numerous medical issues. Hospitalized on a regular basis. When my BP is that high I vomit, sweat, and my body feels so miserable and there's the headache. Yes I've been checked several times for the adrenal tumor. This was a sudden onset at the age of 32 and I'm 45 now. I take clonidine to bring down my BP and hot baths for comfort and the nausea. The nausea meds or medical marijuana doesn't work as well as the hot bath. I've been to the Virginia Mason Clinic in Washington, the Mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota, and OHSU in Oregon nobody can figure this out. Does anyone have any suggestions or maybe some questions about my condition I forgot to mention. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
