Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a chronic condition that often has no noticeable symptoms. In order to diagnose hypertension blood pressure must be measured. In rare cases hypertension is accompanied by symptoms like:

  • dizziness
  • fatigue
  • headache
  • chest pain
  • heart palpations
  • blurred vision
  • blood spots in eyes
  • nosebleeds

When one develops hypertension this means their body has too much pressure building up in their major vessels and this puts them at risk for rupture of these vessels leading to strokes, aneurysms, and heart attacks. High blood pressure is nothing to play around with and not get treatment for.

The common symptoms of hypertension are nausea, headache, dizziness, or blurred vision. If you're experiencing any of these I advise you to make a visit to medical care. If you wait too long it can result in organ damage, stroke, or brain bleeding symptoms when hypertension becomes severe.
