Hypertension Symptoms

 

Most of the men and women unknowingly have hypertension, because the symptoms are very common to other health conditions. Therefore, you should not disregard hypertension signs when experiencing them.

Hypertension Symptoms

  • Tinnitus, lightheadedness, dizziness and/or vertigo
  • Recurrent or worsening distended headache or head heaviness
  • Chest oppression, palpitations
  • Nose bleeding
  • Shortness of breath
  • Irritated, and getting anger easily
  • Face or eye turns red
  • Visual problems or variations
  • Trembling, weakness or fatigue
  • Disturbed sleep (Insomnia)
  • Sore back and/or knees

If you are having higher blood pressure risk factors and having, two or more of high blood pressure symptoms, then get your blood pressure tested.

How and why hypertension symptoms are developing.

What is blood pressure homeostasis? Blood pressure homeostasis is the body’s ability to maintain a constant blood pressure, regardless of internal and external influences. It has rapid and slow mechanism, which helps to keep the blood pressure within normal limits approximately at 120/80 mmHg.

If there is any problem with the blood pressure homeostasis, which cause rise or fall in blood pressure. If blood pressure rises, then you have certain symptoms called as hypertension symptoms.

  • Tinnitus, lightheadedness, dizziness and/or vertigo - tinnitus is an undesirable noise/sound (such as ringing, hissing, whistling, or roaring), heard through the ear or head. The most common cause is damage to the nerve endings in the ear. Hypertension can increase pressure against the blood vessel walls of the auditory apparatus, leads to tinnitus.
  • Recurrent distended headache or head heaviness - The science and physiology behind headaches offer support to well-increased blood pressure causes auto-regulation in the blood vessels of the tissue underneath the skull (where most headaches start). The auto-regulation leads to constriction of those blood vessels causing a headache.
  • Chest oppression, and/or palpitations - most hypertensive undergo stress (or fear/fright) situations that increase adrenalin levels within the body, which causes rapid heartbeat (palpitation) or chest oppression to meet out this stressful situation.
  • Nose bleeding - human nose has numerous blood vessels, which are very delicate; even a slightest knock, bump or increased blood pressure can cause it to bleed.
  • Shortness of breath - anxiety is characterizing by multiple and/or nonspecific worries that interfere with the person's life in some ways. This anxiety stimulates the adrenal gland which in-turn generates a need for extra oxygen to burn excess energy needs, this oxygen shortfall cause’s shortness of breath.
  • Irritated and getting anger readily - stress, anxiety, or anger makes the adrenal gland to produce an excess adrenaline hormone. Overtime, this high level of adrenaline secretion is being practice in the body; this in-turn makes us getting anger or irritated easily. In addition, hypertension can cause problems with your brain, characterized by memory loss, personality changes, trouble concentration, irritability, and getting anger readily.
  • Face or eye turns red - people with hypertension are getting anger/anxious easily,  this mood swing in addition with elevated blood pressure causing blushing due to rush of blood to the head (face).
  • Visual problem or variation - elevated blood pressure can cause swelling of the macula (the central area in the retina) and optic nerves. This reduces the ability to see well or causes vision variation with respect to the blood pressure fluctuations.
  • Weakness or fatigue - prolong hypertension consumes excess energy, as well as strain every blood vessel and organs that it connects. Therefore, prolong high blood pressure leads to weakness or fatigue. In additional, hypertension due to excess pressure increases the excretion of vital minerals as urine makes you feel weak.
  • Disturbed sleep - it has well known a fact that sleeping allows the heart to slow down; however rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is characterizing by increased heart rate, raised blood pressure, and the body does not regulate its temperature. Most of the vivid dreams occur during this REM sleep stage. For peoples already having high blood pressure may experience a further increase in pressure causing night sweat and increased alertness, which affects the normal sleep cycle.
  • Sore back and/or knees – due to elevated blood pressure, an excess amount of calcium has removed as urine; shortage of calcium makes your back and/or knees painful.

High blood pressure is considering as the 'silent killer' because it can affect you causing stroke or kidney problems before you are aware of the condition. Therefore, if you experience any of the above hypertension symptoms never hesitate to go for blood pressure diagnosis.
