High blood pressure may not be that easy to notice, some people may not even realize they have the problem. Doctors even call it a “silent killer” because the consequences are very serious, but the problem develops slowly over time, the symptoms are common to many other conditions, and you may just not be aware of it.
How Can Lower Blood Pressure Immediately?
Let’s take a look at some symptoms:
Headaches. The interesting fact is that people with chronic hypertension often don’t even have headaches. But sudden spikes in blood pressure increase the pressure in the head and cause a severe headache, which doctors call a “hypertensive crisis.” Sudden spikes also often cause nosebleeds.
Blood spots in the eyes and vision problems. Experts believe that high blood pressure can damage the blood vessels in the retina, a small layer at the back of the eyeball where images are focused. It can cause bleeding, which can be noticed as spots of blood and possible vision problems.
Pounding in ears and chest. If you experience palpitations in your ears and chest after strenuous exercise, this is very normal and will return to normal once your heart rate returns to a resting level. However, if these symptoms appear suddenly and for no obvious reason, you should probably check them out.
The consequences of untreated hypertension are very serious and can lead to diseases such as stroke, heart failure, and dementia. While it is not always easy to spot the emerging problem, it is very easy to measure your blood pressure.
Most pharmacies have the right equipment for this, just get in the habit of checking it from time to time. Alternatively, just get a portable blood pressure reader and monitor it that way.
