Hypertension is also called “High Blood Pressure” is a serious medical condition. It happens when the force of blood pumping through your arteries is too strong.
When your heart beats, it pushes blood through your arteries to the rest of your body, when the blood pushes harder against the walls of your arteries, your blood pressure goes up. Your blood pressure may be different at different times of the day. It is usually higher when you first wake up, after you exercise or when you are under stress.
