There are many cause of high blood pressure, but uncontrolled high blood pressure can injure or kill you! It's sometimes called "the silent killer" because HBP has no symptoms, so you may not be aware that it's damaging your arteries, heart and other organs.
Possible health consequences that can happen over time when high blood pressure is left untreated include:
Damage to the heart and coronary arteries, including heart attack, heart disease, congestive heart failure, aortic dissection and atherosclerosis, stroke, kidney damage
vision loss and so on.
You should see your doctor for meds to lower your pressure. Changes in diet and adding exercise to your daily routine can be beneficial also. But do follow up with your doctor with this.  Take care, Ally
