What causes high blood pressure and pain in the chest?
Blood pressure is given as a reading of two numbers, such as 110/70 said Medicine Net.
The health site added: “The higher number (systolic) is the pressure when the heart beats.
“The diastolic, or lower number shows the pressure between the heartbeats while the relaxed heart is refilling with blood.
“Normal blood pressure readings are lower than 120/80.
“The cause of most hypertension is unknown but occasionally conditions of the kidney or adrenal gland are the cause of high blood pressure.
“There are several factors that may cause high blood pressure, but the exact cause is unknown.
“Factors could include smoking, overweight, lack of physical activity or too much salt consumption.”
