High blood pressure also known as a silent killer, because it attacks us without us knowing it. The symptoms of this disease may look usual and kind of ‘easy’. But, you should know that the excessive pressure on your artery walls caused by high blood pressure can damage your blood vessels, as well as organs in your body. The higher your blood pressure and the longer it goes uncontrolled, the greater the damage. If you don’t want anything bad happened to you, you have to know the symptoms of high blood pressure on you and find out it sooner.
1. Fatigue and dizziness
If blood pressure has been elevated for a while, for a period of time there’s less circulation in some of the vessels, including those in the brain. It takes time for those constricted vessels to relax. There may be a perception that there’s less blood flow, which can produce fatigue or dizziness.
Might as well with fatigue and dizziness, it seems like the blood on your brain can not circulate properly, which causes the brain can’t work well like they usually do.
3. Nausea or upset stomach
when the blood pressure is too much, your brain wouldn’t get sufficient oxygen, thus will resulting in nausea. If you have high blood pressure, your heart will pump much harder to circulate oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. If the problem persist, your brain begin to lose their oxygen supply.
4. Vision changes or problems
This happens because eyes don’t get enough blood supply to work properly.
Your nose can bleed if the small blood vessels in your nose rupture because of the pressure exerted by the blood in the arteries during a high blood pressure attack. Nosebleed in high blood pressure is called posterior nosebleed.
Anxiety or nervousness, palpitations (strong, fast or obviously irregular heartbeat), ringing or buzzing in the ears are also signs or symptoms of high blood pressure. But they haven’t been proven yet. If you think that you are showing symptoms of high blood pressure but have not spoken to your doctor about it, then consider making an appointment to have your blood pressure checked out as soon as possible.
