Elevated Plasma Renin Activity and Aldosterone

Hello. I am a 26 year old female, healthy weight (5'5" 120 lbs), and received blood work and a 24 urine sample due to quite frequently experiencing a variety of troubling symptoms (tachycardia, hypertension, numb/cold extremities, trembling of hands, dizziness/ feeling lightheaded). My test results indicate that my Plasma Renin Activity is elevated (7.56 ng/mL/H) and so is my aldosterone (40 ng/dL- endocrenologist indicated this was double normal level). If anyone could please help me interpret these test results, and provide insight as to whether the symptoms I am experiencing could be related to these elevated levels, I would be very appreciative. Thank you for your time. Please let me know if I can provide any other information that may be helpful.
