Blood Pressure Home > Symptoms of High Blood Presure

Were you looking for information about Symptoms of High Blood Pressure? Symptoms of high blood presure is a common misspelling of symptoms of high blood pressure.
 
Symptoms of high blood pressure (hypertension) usually do not develop over days, weeks, or months. It often takes years for symptoms to become noticeable. People who exhibit high blood pressure signs may experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and blurred vision.
 
About 1 percent of people with hypertension do not seek medical care until their symptoms become severe. In fact, high blood pressure is commonly referred to as "the silent killer" because its symptoms are often mild and nonspecific (meaning they could be caused by several different conditions). A few of the signs of severe high blood pressure include headache, nausea, and lightheadedness.
