I was a slim 32 year old female with no health problems when I was diagnosed with high blood pressure on a routine check for something else.Turned out it was familial.So my advise to everyone is get it checked.
Oddly enough after being on meds for three years had it checked again and I'm fine and no longer need any medication.Must've done something right so it's not the end of the world.No symptoms by the way.

there aren't any symptoms ! it just means over time that your veins and arteries become narrower, which in turn means more work for the heart.

thinning the blood is a good start. taking Garlic (fresh or kwai tablets) will mean the blood can flow easier reducing the pressure

passing out... getting dizzy when you stand up to fast... bending over to pick something up and you get spots.... those are a few... good luck Grant M in Pennsylvania

Quite often there are no symptoms and you only know that your blood pressure is high when the doctor checks it, and it may read high then because of the "white coat syndrome". You can check it yourself at a pharmacy if they have the free machines. Take it once and record the results and then take it a short time again. If you are overweight, losing a few pounds will usually bring your pressure down.


If your blood pressure is extremely high, there may be certain symptoms to look out for, including:

Severe headache
Fatigue or confusion
Vision problems
Chest pain
Difficulty breathing
Irregular heartbeat
Blood in the urine
If you have any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately. You could be having a hypertensive crisis that could lead to a heart attack or stroke.

There isn't any that is why its called the silent killer. Get your blood pressure checked by a doctor to know for sure.

Oddly, there aren't any. This is the biggest problem with this condition but getting it checked out by your doctor couldn't be simpler.

Sometimes there are none, until it blows up as a heart attack: Not for nothing is it called 'the silent killer'.

But headaches and vertigo have been reported. And a person with high blood pressure will get flushed in the face more easily than most.

Your best bet is to have a check-up.

Good luck!

People with primary (essential) high blood pressure usually do not have any symptoms. Most people with high blood pressure feel fine and only find out they have high blood pressure during a routine examination or a doctor visit for another problem.

Very severe high blood pressure (stage 2), especially malignant high blood pressure (hypertensive crisis), may cause:

Headaches, especially pulsating headaches behind the eyes that occur early in the morning.
Visual disturbances.
Nausea and vomiting.
Over time, untreated high blood pressure can damage organs, such as the heart, kidneys, or eyes. This may lead to:

Chest pain (angina), heart attack, or heart failure.
Kidney (renal) failure.
Peripheral arterial disease.
Eye damage (retinopathy).
Abnormal heartbeat.

Sometimes there are no signs, the Dr could find that out during a routine exam, some people would say they have a headache or feel dizzy.

For a very large majority of people there are no symptoms at all. Untreated high blood pressure can lead to stroke or heart attack. You can check your blood pressure at most drug stores so that at least you can get an idea of whether it tends to be high or not. If it is high, SEE YOUR DOCTOR!!

They say that there are no symptoms. However I was getting really bad headaches and dizzy spells, which is way I went to the doctor. My blood pressure was so high I was given medication straight away. I have my blood pressure checked every 2 weeks until they get the mediction at the right dose. It is advisable to have regular blood pressure checks as most people get no symptoms.
