Hypertension on 3 meds

Does anyone know what could cause a seemingly healthy 30 year old female to have hypertension. With out my meds my blood pressure will run the 160-180/120-130... I have tried a cocktail of meds and am finally on 1200 mg of Labtoral (sp) daily, plus 10 mg of amlodapin (sp) and am still running high 140/111 at my cardiologist the other day. He also started me on HTZC this week so I haven't had an official reading on that yet. I do have chronic kidney stones but other then that I am pretty healthy. All my ekgs and ultrasounds came back normal and so do all my blood work... any ideas??

I understand your concern regarding this and it is good that initial diagnostic tests were normal. The exact causes of high blood pressure are not known, but several factors and conditions such as smoking, overweight or obese, lack of physical activity, too much salt in the diet, and even stress and family history may be contributory factors. If the underlying cause cannot be determined, this type of high blood pressure is called essential hypertension. While kidney diseases may be a secondary cause of hypertension, it is best that you check with your nephrologist also to evaluate your kidney stones especially if has been chronic. Take care and do keep us posted.

I saw him this week. He is looking for a tumor in my adrenal gland. It has a very long name I can't think of.
