What are the dangers of hypertension? If left untreated and uncontrolled, it will lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney or heart failure, and sudden death.

—The most dangerous symptom of hypertension is the complete absence of symptoms!!! — said Korenevich.

Hypertensive patients usually have no complaints or symptoms. Moreover, many of them do not even know that they are sick, and this is very dangerous.

The doctor draws attention to such symptoms and emphasizes that few people attribute them to problems with blood pressure:

  • headache,
  • pressure in the chest,
  • anxiety and fear appear,
  • Your arms and legs go numb,
  • Your heart tingles and sinks,
  • Goosebumps run all over your body,
  • You can’t breathe,
  • You feel cold , then it’s hot.

Also, blood pressure increases due to anxiety and fear, so you need to work on yourself.

High blood pressure, or arterial hypertension, is a serious condition that requires medical intervention.

A few classic signs that may indicate high blood pressure:

1. Headache. Often high blood pressure is accompanied by headaches, especially in the occipital region or temples. It may be pulsating and intensify with activity.

2. Dizziness and foggy consciousness. High blood pressure can cause feelings of dizziness, instability and even loss of consciousness.

3. Short-term visual impairment. These are spots before the eyes, flashes or loss of vision for several minutes.

4. Difficulty breathing or a feeling of shortness of breath even with little physical activity.

5. Chest pain or chest discomfort, which may be a sign of a heart problem.

6. Redness or tingling of the face, especially around the cheeks and forehead.
