Renal denervation is an option of treatment
Get also a bilateral renal Doppler done to see the renal arteries
If renal Doppler is normal and you undergo renal denervation and it also doesn't help you will have to be on life long drugs
Also a possibility is some occult malignancy
Causing ectopic production of catecholamine
So this should also be ruled out
