What is BP?: Do you have a BP cuff in the house? What is your current blood pressure? The main problem of hyeprtension (or high blood pressure) is its effects on major organs - brain, heart, kidney, blood vessels. When it affects the brain, you can get neurologic symptoms or a stroke; when it affects the heart, you can get a heart attack. When it affects the kidney or the others, damage can be irreversible.
