Hi mohdhijjawi,

A medical professional is the best person to consult with this problem you are experiencing (which I see that you have done). Did any of the doctors that ran tests suggest any actions you can take to lower your blood pressure? This article has some good tips you might follow. It sounds like it may be a combination of things that is causing your high blood pressure and other symptoms of general illness. Not sleeping, stress from your projects, being slightly overweight, and not getting adequate exercise could all be contributing to your symptoms.

Try following some of the suggestions in the above link, and please let us know how you are doing! If you feel your symptoms worsening, please make another appointment with your doctor for another evaluation.

Best wishes,
