    High blood pressure is divided into two: the symptomatic and the non-symptomatic (this is the one that is dangerous ).
    Symptomatic means symptoms are felt by the patient. Some of the synptoms are the following:
    Chest pain that radiates to the left jaw, left shoulder and left arm
    Nape pain
    Dizziness
    Nausea and vomiting
    Loss of consciousness

    Yes you are all right.The symptoms you mentioned are correct. But the most evident ones are nape pain, and dizziness. My brother was diagnosed with high blood pressure and whenever it attacks him he always complain about his nape pain and dizziness.

    The number cases of Hypertension is rising nowadays due to the lifestyle that people engaged in. High blood pressure affects all of the organ systems hence signs and symptoms vary depending on the severity of the disease. People usually note of nape pain with associated headache, dizziness, blurring of vision, nausea and vomiting. Severe cases of uncontrolled hypertension may present with organ problems such as vision loss secondary to retinopathies, cardiac problems in particular cardiac enlargement and calcification of the major arteries and veins and may be in the form of palpitations, chest pain, difficulty o breathing or shortness of breath. Cases of edema and congestion usually is seen in patients with hypertensive nephropathies. Given these symptoms, we are all reminded of the importance of proper diet/low salt low fat diet combined with moderate exercise for cases of hypertension. Hypertensives must also be compliant to maintenance medications to control their blood pressures at a level which will not further induce organ problems. It is also beneficial to have blood pressure monitoring and recording to check for the current state of BP control.

    The usual symptom of High Blood Pressure is headache followed by pain on the back of the neck or other parts of the body. The person might experience dizziness and nausea. The heart rate sometimes also increases accompanied by difficulty of breathing. When someone experiences these symptoms it is advisable to rest and take some medicines to lower blood pressure.

    Speaking from my own experience, I was diagnosed with borderline hypertension before I quit my job at a local bank. The reading was as high as 159/110. To my surprise it was pretty much asymptomatic - means it shows no symptoms. I mean I have experienced light dizziness sometimes, but who has not?

    My point is this: hypertension is a silent killer. Unfortunately, there is no single symptom that is a clear indicator that you are having hypertension. It varies depending on the individual. The best way to confirm is to have your blood pressure monitored consistently during a period of time. Only by then, based on consistency of the readings and fluctuation pattern, the doctor could decide and advise you accordingly.

    Hypertension is another name for high blood pressure. It can lead to severe complications and increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and death.

    Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the walls of the blood vessels. The pressure depends on the work being done by the heart and the resistance of the blood vessels.

    Medical guidelines define hypertension as a blood pressure higher than 130 over 80millimeters of mercury (mmHg), according to guidelines issued by the American Heart Association (AHA) in November 2017.

    Around 85 million people in the United States have high blood pressure.

    Hypertension and heart disease are global health concerns. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that the growth of the processed food industry has impacted the amount of salt in diets worldwide, and that this plays a role in hypertension
     
  9. Blood Pressure, the most common word or the disease we hear among people living in such a stressed generation. Its a myth that people with high blood pressure will experience symptoms, like nervousness, sweating, difficulty sleeping or facial flushing. High blood pressure is a largely symptom less “silent killer.” If you ignore your blood pressure because you think a certain symptom or sign will alert you to the problem, you are taking a dangerous chance with your life.
    Stress is one of the major reason which causes high blood pressure but, it can be cured by living a healthy and stress less life. As, we have heard laughter is the best medicine . It cures every problem we have in our body.

    Hypertension may not produce any symptoms, even if you have had it for years. That's why it is sometimes referred to as a "silent killer." It's estimated that 1 out of every 5 people with high blood pressure aren't aware that they have this major risk factor for strokes and heart attacks. If not properly treated, high blood pressure can damage the heart and circulation, lungs, brain, and kidneys without causing noticeable symptoms. Symptoms of high blood pressure may be present in those who have an extremely high blood pressure. Symptoms of extremely high blood pressure include the following:
    Severe head aches,vision problems,fatigue,chest pain,irregular heart beat,difficulty in breathing,blood in urine,and pounding in chest,neck and ears.

    First things first, I'll start with Severe headache.
    Fatigue or confusion.
    Vision problems.
    Chest pain.
    Difficulty breathing.
    Irregular heartbeat.
    Blood in the urine.
    Pounding in your chest, neck, or ears. A high blood pressure significantly increases the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and kidney disease. High blood pressure is not usually something that you can feel or notice, and it can go undiagnosed because there are usually no symptoms. Regardless, high blood pressure can lead to kidney damage, stroke or a heart attack. Therefore, it's important you get your blood pressure checked regularly. You may ask with your Doctor or nurse how often to get it checked. Blood pressure is the pressure of the blood in your arteries. You need a certain amount of pressure to keep the blood flowing around your body. Your heart pumps blood through the arteries, by contracting and relaxing. You may need to have a regular physical activities, eat a healthy balanced diet. No salt, Don't dring alcohol drinks and as always take your medicines as prescribed by your doctor.

    Most commonly high blood pressure causes no symptoms at all. This means that people with high blood pressure can be having damage occur to their heart, kidneys, eyes, and circulation without feeling badly! It is very important, therefore, to have blood pressure testing as part of the routine physical examination. However, in people with uncomplicated high blood pressure, they may experience head ache,blurred vision,dizziness and shortness of breath.
    The consequences of high blood pressure depend on the severity and the duration of the pressure, as well as the underlying medical condition of the individual affected. High blood pressure can affect the heart to cause:
    shortness of breth,chest pain and heart attach.
    High blood pressure can impair the function of the kidneys, leading to fluid retention and swelling of the legs, and even kidney failure. High blood pressure can affect the eyes, causing vision loss. High blood pressure can seriously affect the circulation causing pain in the legs with walking, cold feet, and stroke.
    Fortunately, when high blood pressure is detected early, treated, and monitored, the consequences of high blood pressure can be avoided.

    The most dangerous of of having a high blood pressure being unaware. Very important to have a regular check up here are some symptoms of high blood pressure irregular heart beat, chest pain, severe head ache, fatigue, difficulty in breathing and pain along occiput (back of your head).

    Here are the symptoms according to google:
    • Severe headache.
    • Fatigue or confusion.
    • Vision problems.
    • Chest pain.
    • Difficulty breathing.
    • Irregular heartbeat.
    • Blood in the urine.
    • Pounding in your chest, neck, or ears.
    But this can be treated by eating a healthy diet. Food, which is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 11mm Hg if you have high blood pressure. This eating plan is known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet.

    High blood pressure or hypertension is described as the rise in pressure of the blood as it passes against the walls of the arteries.
    The main causes of high blood pressure are:
    1.Age
    Old people are prone to getting high blood pressure than the young

    2.obesity or overweight
    Overweight means their is too much fat in the body thus too much fat in the arteries which closes the walls of the arteries leading them to strain to strain in order to pump blood

    3.pregnancy
    Women who are pregnant have a higher blood pressure than women who are not pregnant.

    4.smoking
    Smoking destroys the lungs .Oxygen can't be pumped well into the lungs thus leading to high blood pressure.

    4.Lack of physical activity
    Lack of exercise can cause the body the body to build up fats making it hard for the arteries to pump blood.

    5.Gender
    Men experience high blood pressure more than women do.

    6.familiy history
    Africans are more prone to getting hypertension more than the white Caucasian/white.

    7.Temperature
    At low temperature the blood is pumped higher than in the hot temperatures.

    High blood pressure can be prevented by eating proper diet,no smoking ,avoiding stress and regular exciseses .

    High blood pressure usually causes no symptoms and high blood pressure often is labeled "the silent killer." People who have high blood pressure typically don't know it until their blood pressure is measured.
    Sometimes people with markedly elevated blood pressure may develop complications because organs are stressed when they are exposed to the elevated pressure.

    High blood pressure is dangerous as it destroys the arteries, by causing narrowing of the arteries or aneurysms.

    Normal prices
    The recommended pressure limits are continually changing, with a tendency to decrease. Large epidemiological studies have shown that those with systolic blood pressure (the "high" pressure) of 110 mmHg are less likely to have a heart attack compared to those with "high" 130.

    Thus, it is now believed that ideal blood pressure should not exceed 120/80 mmHg; however, the precise composition is kept below 140/90 mmHg in the general population and below 130/80 mmHg in diabetics.

    Some say it is a myth that hypertension causes symptoms. However, some conditions may be associated with high blood pressure and therefore should not be ignored.

    These are:

    -Breathlessness

    -Headache

    -Nosebleed

    -Confusion

    -Vomit

    - Intense sweating

    -Blurred vision

    Usually, the annoyances are due to the complications of pressure that occur after some years, that's why in the USA hypertension is known as a silent killer.
