    There is a very long list of causes of high blood pressure (hypertension)as you can read in this article – http://www.healthhype.com/what-causes-high-blood-pressure-essential-secondary-malignant.html

    Most cases of hypertension is essential or primary hypertension and the cause of this is not known. It is more likely to occur with a genetic predisposition and is associated with risk factors such as obesity, cigarette smoking and other lifestyle factors. Other known causes of hypertension includes kidney and liver diseases, diabetes mellitus and other conditions listed under secondary hypertension where the mechanism is better understood.

    You should speak to your doctor about your specific case.
