The symptoms of high blood pressure often times may be no symptoms at all. Yes, for the most part, high blood pressure has no symptoms. Some occasionally get symptoms but the vast majority of people have no symptoms. The only way to know is to have the blood pressure reading.
Most people do not have noticeable symptoms that they are experiencing high blood pressure.
High blood pressure levels in what some call the Stroke Zone is when your systolic BP is 180 or higher or your diastolic of 110 or higher.
When your blood pressure is this high for either number, you have what is called a hypertensive crisis. Emergency medical treatment is needed.
However, as far as the dangers, this is not totally accurate. Why is it so high? What is the age? What are the health concerns. A more critical number is the pulse pressure. This is the difference between the top and bottom number.
If you are an adult older than 60 years, a pulse pressure greater than 60 may be a predictor of heart attacks. It may also be a sign of other cardiovascular disease, more so for men than women. Sometimes a low pulse pressure (less than 40) could be an indicator of poor heart function.
In adults and especially for those over 60, in our experience, when emergency medical help is not available, and for those with normal kidney function and no problems with using unprocessed sea salt, the water cures protocol has brought down the blood pressure.
It may take drinking two or three 8 ounce glasses of water spaced out over 15 minutes, each with 1/16th tsp of unprocessed sea salt dissolved in the mouth before drinking the water. The key to this working is the salt being absorbed in the mouth so it can get into the blood stream along with the trace minerals found in the salt.
What about the so-called high blood pressure symptoms?
When blood pressure gets sky high, some of these symptoms may occur or not. Because they do not occur for everyone, it is not a good idea to wait for them. Also, it is age, sex, health and activity dependent.
- Severe headaches
- Severe anxiety
- Shortness of breath
- Tinnitus noise may intensify
Experts say, the only safe sign to depend on is the one you read from a blood pressure cuff.
We all should know our blood pressure numbers. We should know our normal. When we have any health problems, then we know what our baseline is.
Many of the assumed high blood pressure symptoms do not hold up to the science. They are fiction but are still believed to be real signs. Since they occasionally occur, this does not mean that for some, they are not real either. The only way to know for sure, have your blood pressure taken.
High blood pressure or hypertension symptom fiction include
- difficulty sleeping
- facial flushing
- nose bleeds (exception: hypertensive crisis may result in nose bleeds but it is a small percentage)
Since these do not really warn us of high blood pressure, it is dangerous to think that they are a warning sign of high blood pressure. Your pressure could be through the roof and with out the signs, you are none the wiser.
We all need to know our blood pressure and normal vital signs. By knowing our bodies, we can.
Everybody needs to know their blood pressure numbers, and everyone needs to prevent high blood pressure from developing.
Headaches, although not necessarily a sign of high blood pressure, can be signs of other serious conditions. If you have headaches, you need to find out why.
Example: acute CNS toxicity related to NSAID use presents as headaches. If you use NSAIDS, this should be considered.
One Possible Solution We C
Note: High pulse pressure (greater than 60) may indicate a leaky heart valves which causes valve regurgitation, which is caused by loss of aortic elasticity. In other words, the stiffness of the aorta, the largest artery in the body could be the cause.
When looking at some of the numerous conditions and diseases where there is also depleted ascorbate levels, there is an interesting finding. Included in the conditions/diseases are metabolic syndrome, diabetes with poor glycemic control, atherosclerosis, smoking, poor dietary intake of vitamin C, inflammatory neurodegenerative diseases, and sepsis.
