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.
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 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. The key to this working is the salt being absorbed in the mouth so it can get into the blood stream along with the minerals.
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.
- Severe headaches
- Severe anxiety
- Shortness of breath
- Tinnitus noise may intensify
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.
