By definition, the cause of primary high blood pressure is unknown so if another illness is causing your high blood pressure then you have what is known as secondary high blood pressure. However, primary high blood pressure can lead to several health complications including a heart attack, stroke or an aneurysm. It can also damage your kidneys and your blood vessels. It is important to get treatment for your primary high blood pressure in order to avoid these complications.

What is multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS)?
Lawrence Chiaramonte, MD, Allergy & Immunology, answeredMCS (multiple chemical sensitivity) is a term used to describe a variety of symptoms that stem from alterations in a person's indoor environment, primarily at work, but sometimes at home. So-called "sick building syndrome" may be caused by chemicals in modern building materials, or it may be a function of ventilation problems caused by new construction methods and energy-saving techniques. Unless new air is exchanged for old air at a certain rate, allergens, toxins, or chemical residue can become concentrated at levels high enough to provoke a reaction. Just as problematic is the process of renovation, when molds, mouse droppings, dust, or chemicals that have been undisturbed may be stirred up and circulate in the building.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
