In brief: Hypertension

Hypertension is a chronic illness and does not have a cure but can be controlled with medications and exercise and weight loss.
Now did you mean orthostatic hypotension? This is from abrupt changes in position that makes the BP drop. Slower movement resolves the problem.

If it is indeed orthostatic hypertension that you have and not hypotension, you need to be tested for autoimmune dysautonomia, you need to see a neurologist.
