High blood pressure is a common condition in which the force of the blood against your artery walls may cause health problems. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure is. You can have this disease for years without any symptoms. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attacks and strokes. That’s why it is recommended to check evenly your blood pressure.
Most people with hypertension have no symptoms, but a few people may have headaches, shortness of breath or nosebleeds.
