Do I Suffer From High Blood Pressure? Am I At Risk?

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure

As said previously, most people do not know that they suffer from hypertension because it produces unspecific to no symptoms in the early stages. For this reason, many people are diagnosed when their bodies have already developed irreversible damage to their hearts and other organs. Therefore, you should always visit your primary care physician for routine checkups. Additionally, you must keep in check if the following symptoms are present and persistent:

  1. Dizziness
  2. Headaches
  3. Ear buzzing
  4. Blurry vision
  5. Difficulty to breathe
  6. Palpitations
  7. Loss of coordination
  8. Tremors (handshaking)
  9. Chest pain
  10. Excessive thirst

Most symptoms are unspecific and can pinpoint other diseases, like diabetes, heart anginas, hypoglicemias, and ear infections. However, they should always be kept in check since hypertension can also be the cause of it.

Even though your primary care physicians are the ones who will help you maintain your blood pressure in normal ranges, you must try to adopt healthy habits in your lifestyle to further decrease the chances of developing hypertension. In the end, your health remains in your hands!
