Hypertension and Hardened Heart Walls
Hi,  

I am a 44 year old woman and six weeks ago my doctor started me on high blood pressured medicine because my blood pressure was very high, 160/86.  He then sent me the next day to have an echo, heart ultrasound.  Today when I went for my follow up he told me that the echo showed that the walls of my heart were hardened.  This is new to me, I never heard of it before, and he said that this was probably due to the high blood pressure.  Is this true?  Is there such a thing as hardened heart walls and if so what exactly is it, is it the same as hardened of the arteries?  
Thank you for your answer.
