Blood pressure (high or low) is a symptom. Why do we have to treat the symptom? Are all BPs same (the underlying cause)?

 

It's not really a symptom so much as a measurement that gives us data on blood flow, status of the arterial walls, and the rate of heartbeat, for instance. Iirc, different medications are prescribed if blood pressure is affected by thickened artery walls than if affected by irregular heartbeats.
