Will Medullary Sponge Kidney Disease (MSK) cause high blood pressure?

I was diagnosed hypertension last month with the blood pressure of 112/173 at the age of 36. I was told it is Essential hypertension instead of secondary hypertension, and I began to take some medicine. My blood pressure became normal soon after I took the medicine, but last week in a physical examination, I was told that I got a Sponge Kidney Disease (MSK). Is there any relationship between MSK and the high blood pressure? `Cause I found there’re lots of people who are suffering both MSK and hypertension.

I agree with you that a lot suffer from both .. but I'm not sure why, either.  I do know when passing a stone or in active pain, BP can rise but not sure why higher BP can be common .. Does it have anything to do with RTA?

your kidneys regulate your blood pressure. when you have MSN the kidneys are not functioning properly. I too have MSK and high blood pressure at a young age.
