How do I recognize hypertension? Typical signs

Even healthy feeling people can be affected by hypertension.

Symptoms of high blood pressure, or hypertension, often show up long after developing the condition. You could have it for years without knowing it, and so it often goes undetected for a while, while still silently wreaking havoc on the body. A trip to the doctor’s office often has people surprised to discover that they’ve been living with hypertension, experiencing virtually no symptoms at all. Sadly, damage to the body might still have occurred even without feeling it physically. The only sure way to detect high blood pressure early is to regularly monitor your levels - even if you’re asymptomatic.

The following symptoms, among others, may indicate high blood pressure.

· ongoing fatigue

· insomnia

· nausea

· shortness of breath

· chest pain

· increased sweating

· thirst

· frequent urination

· giddiness

· unexplained headache

· nervousness

· shortness of breath

· heart palpitations

· tightness in chest

· sweats

· difficulty in breathing

· numbness in hands and feet

· tinnitus

· nosebleeds

· anxiety

· acute throbbing headache

· blurred vision

· In particularly bad cases, impaired consciousness, convulsions, paralysis and vomiting

If you’ve been diagnosed with hypertension, and are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you might have already been exposed to some of the damaging effects of the condition.
