Same problem, any ideas?

As in the previous entries, I too suffer from sudden spikes of bp. Once as high as 210/80. Normally, I'm a 125/65 with a 62 pulse. Most attacks happen around lunch time. I take Amlodipine every night and clonidine when the pressure spikes.

Like the others, I've had may tests, including a MRI of my adrenal gland. My cardiologist is out of ideas.

Is there anyone out there who has found a cause or a cure?
