The risks of high blood pressure.

Q: My BP is 137/99. What are the risks? Is this really high?

A: Blood pressure that is 137/99 increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.  It is at the level where treatment is recommended.  Since treatment may be as easy as listening to music and breathing, i.e. the Resperate, why take the risk?
