High Blood Pressure Symptoms
and Hypertension Causes
What are the High Blood Pressure symptoms you should look out for and what are the causes of high blood pressure?
Usually there are none. People with very high blood pressure can feel quite well. It is rare to feel headache, palpitations or sick until complications set in. The following Hypertension Symptoms may indicate the effects of high blood pressure on organ damage :
High Blood Pressure Headache - Headache is one of the hypertension symptoms that may occur in hypertensive patients (remember most are asymptomatic). It is typically early morning, occipital and throbbing. It appears to be related to the severity of blood pressure.
Dyspnea on exertion - This is a sensation of breathlessness that is excessive for any given level of physical activity. Patients may complain of tightness in the chest. Appropriate breathlessness following activities such as running to catch a bus is not abnormal, but may be excessive due to obesity or lack of fitness.
Chest Pains - Sudden onset of pain in chest may indicate myocardial ischaemia, especially if accompanied with left arm pain.
Ankle Oedema or Swelling
Hematuria - This is the presence of blood in urine. It may be only microscopic hematuria or the detection of red cells in the urine. Your doctor may carry out urine tests to check for possible target organ damage and possible causes of secondary hypertension.
Hypertension Symptoms & Treatment, Blood Pressure monitoring, BP Chart
In most cases (up to 95%), there is no identifiable cause, it just happens that way. The pressure in our arteries is high because the heart pumps too hard and the arteries are too narrow. This is like the pressure in a hose, the further we turn up the tap and the narrower the hose, the greater the pressure.
Sometimes hypertension is caused by a kidney problem or other rare disorder. Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol is an important cause.
Certain drugs may cause hypertension such as NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents), corticosteroids, oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy.
