High blood pressure symptoms in men - what are they? How can you recognise them? In this article, I'll tell you some of the symptoms that men with high blood pressure can get.
Some people with high b.p. can suffer from headaches. Of course, most headaches are benign and very few are a threat to your health. But if you have a headache and high blood pressure, then dismissing your symptoms could lead to grave consequences.
If you have very high b.p. then a possible symptom is vision problems. This is because your retina contains many tiny blood vessels and are among the first to get damaged.
Sometimes, high b.p. can cause a person to fit. If you have a fit out of nowhere then it is more likely that you have epilepsy or some other condition. However, your doctor will always check your b.p. first, just in case.
Black-outs are not a common symptom. Similar to fits, your doctor will want to rule out high b.p. first.
Nausea And Vomiting
Some people with this condition can feel nauseous and feel the need to vomit for no apparent reason. Doctors may misdiagnose their condition when a simple check would have sufficed.
What If I Don't Have These Symptoms?
Do not be foolish and think that a lack of symptoms means that your b.p. is OK. Doctors don't call this "the silent killer" for nothing.
The only way that any person can be sure that they have a normal b.p. is if they check it with a b.p. monitor. This is because the vast majority of people with high b.p. do not have any symptoms at all.
