In brief: Shock
High blood pressure causes problem by causing a little damage to your vessels each time your heart beats.
It is this chronic damage that results in heart attacks strokes and kidney problems. Looking at what is a dangerous level is all about drama. A dangerous level is 85/50. It means you are in shock.
