High Blood Pressure

Did you know that having high blood pressure is not just a condition for older people? Even those in their 20s can experience it. High blood pressure or hypertension can be called the “silent killer” because it often does not show any symptoms. However, there are some warning signs that you should be aware of. Hypertension is a condition where the blood force against arteries is consistently high, causing damage to blood vessels and vital organs, and leading to serious health problems. It’s important to keep in mind that the absence of symptoms doesn’t mean that your blood pressure is normal. The only reliable way to check is to schedule regular exams with your doctor.

The following are some possible indicators of hypertension:

Common symptoms:

  • Headaches: High blood pressure may be indicated by a dull, throbbing headache behind your eyes or in the back of your head.
  • Fatigue or tiredness: Constantly feeling worn out, even after adequate rest, may also be a sign of high blood pressure.
  • Dizziness: Reduced blood supply to the brain can cause dizziness or lightheadedness, especially when standing up.
  • Blurred vision: Vision changes, like double or blurry vision, may indicate that your eyes are being affected by high blood pressure.
  • Bleeding noses: Regular nosebleeds, particularly if they happen without any injuries, may indicate hypertension.
  • Sleeping issues: If you’re experiencing problems going or staying asleep, high blood pressure may be the cause.

Less common symptoms

  • Chest pain, particularly pain that gets worse when you move or are under stress.
  • Heart palpitations or rapid heartbeats
  • Breathlessness.
  • Ear ringing.

Keep in mind that not everyone with high blood pressure may exhibit these symptoms; these are merely a few possible indicators. Regular blood pressure checks are the only way to determine for sure if you have high blood pressure.
