In brief: What injection ?
I am not aware of any injections that pt can inject at home for bp.
Cause of BP is most commonly age, and heredity.

In brief: RAS
She needs to be evaluated completely by cardiovascular or renal specialist -- she may have renal artery disease that would make treatment of hypertension quite resistant and difficult.
