Hi Anon and thanks for your post. A blood pressure reading  is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.People can have high blood pressure with no symptoms.Over the long run the force of the blood against artery walls can lead to serious health problems including heart disease. There are many ways to manage high blood pressure and if you think you have this condition your health care professional can help you learn how to manage your blood pressure to maintain good health.  Best, Pat
