Hypertension: alone can cause all of these symptoms, and you definitely have it. You need to see your doctor ASAP and get on a more effective medication, and also rule out causes other than just essential hypertension. If you can't get an appointment, and these symptoms continue, you need to go to an ED to get an additional medication or a recommendation for an increase in your dose. This could be serious. ...Read more
