Genetic Malignant hypertension
My wife is 48 years old, very active, very healthy diet, and has never smoked. She has been on the highest does of hypertension medication for the past 8 years. Off these medications, her blood pressure will exceed 225 within hours. Chronically, four days prior to menstrual cycle her blood pressure will reach 200+ even with her medications. Her father passed away at age 36 of stroke, and his brother passed at 34, same condition and both similarly were in very top physical shape and healthy diet.
Over the past three years my wife has been experiencing intense tingling or pins and needles sensation on her left side. These attacks have become more severe over time. These episodes are at a point now where they happen without any warning, either after or during exertion, and or at rest, simply turning over in bed while sleeping. The pins and needles are felt over the whole extent of the body at once, from the shoulders to the toes and everything in between. These attacks last several minutes, while in this state, she is unable to breathe, and the level of discomfort is borderline painful. I have been unable to find any information online.
Any time or information you can share regarding this condition will be greatly appreciated.
