Wilson's syndrome and marginal high blood pressure

I've just read about Wilson's syndrome. I have many symptoms: low temp (AM oral temp is typically 97 or less), low energy, frequent headaches, constipation, great difficulty in losing weight (especially on calorie-restricted diets) but, in the last year, I have had some high blood pressure readings -140/110, but not consistently high. Can high blood pressure co-exist with Wilson's Syndrome?

I have finally come to the conclusion that there is no Wilson's syndrome. I believe what is described by Dr. Wilson is caused by damage to the immune system by various causes such as mercury, antibiotics, coffee, tobacco, stress, etc. These conditions slow metabolism and mimic thyroid disorders.
