Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: olmesartan group
olmesartan (20mg qd then 40mg qd for titrating BP <140/90 mmHg)
Drug: Olmesartan
Active Comparator: other group
other anti-hypertensive drug (titrating BP <140/90 mmHg)
Drug: other anti-hypertensive drug
CCB, diuretics, alpha blocker, direct vasodilator, beta blocker

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain free maximum walking distance and time [ Time Frame: 12th week ]
    Effect of olmesartan in maximum, pain free walking distance & time

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quality of life as measured by questionnaires [ Time Frame: 24th week ]
    Effect of olmesartan in quality of life (WIQ, SF-36)

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Pulse wave analysis as measured by PWV [ Time Frame: 24th week ]
    pulse wave velocity

  2. Blood pressure by measured by 24hr ABPM [ Time Frame: 24th week ]
    24hr ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
