Hypertension: Symptoms And Diagnosis

Most of the time, people who suffer from high blood pressure have no symptoms. This is why high blood pressure is also called the "silent killer." Complications related to untreated hypertension can have serious consequences and may lead to death.

In rare cases, some people may feel a slight pain in the back of the head, waking up in the morning during the early stages of hypertension. Headaches, dizziness and nosebleeds can sometimes be reported if the blood pressure is very high, but these symptoms are very rare.

When measuring blood pressure, it is recommended to take two or more readings spaced two minutes and average the results. If an increase in blood pressure is detected during a physical examination, your doctor will usually return the view to follow in a few months before you prescribe. It is very important to keep these appointments followed.
