Symptoms Of High Blood Pressure

What Are The Symptoms Of High Blood Pressure?

In most cases there are no symptoms of high blood pressure. For this reason hypertension is known as the silent killer. Even when a person’s blood pressure reaches dangerous levels there are no clear symptoms to indicate there is a problem.

Sometimes people with elevated blood pressure may experience…
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Blurred vision
But such symptoms are vague and therefore not necessarily connected to hypertension. When these symptoms are a result of elevated blood pressure the condition is usually well advanced and the patient may be in serious danger.

Sometimes the symptoms associated with high blood pressure are actually the result of secondary conditions that are in part caused by long-term hypertension. Untreated high blood pressure can lead to blood vessel damage, heart attack, and even stroke. These latter conditions may certainly produce symptoms.

So What Should We Do?

The only way to know for sure if you have hypertension is to have your blood pressure measured. If you don’t want to have your doctor do it you can purchase a home blood pressure monitor and take the measurement yourself. They are relatively inexpensive and can remove your doubt concerning the state of your blood pressure.

High blood pressure is a serious condition. There are medications that can help as well as natural ways to get your blood pressure down. But the first step is to have your blood pressure measured. It is the only certain way to determine your condition.
