What are Symptoms of Hypertension & High Blood Pressure?
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, may have no symptoms at all. You can have high blood pressure for years before experiencing any symptoms, and this is one reason it is important to get regular blood pressure checks even if you are otherwise healthy. If you do have any of the hypertension symptoms listed below, Low T Center can help.
Fatigue is a symptom of hypertension that could also be caused by a number of other conditions as well. Furthermore, fatigue is also a symptom of conditions that can increase your risk of high blood pressure, such as sleep apnea or diabetes. It is not uncommon for fatigue to go unnoticed as a symptom for hypertension and other conditions because people may assume that is simply due to stress or other causes. However, if you are struggling with ongoing fatigue, visit us at Low T Center to have your blood pressure and other indicators evaluated.
Chest pain or an irregular heartbeat can also be symptoms of high blood pressure. These are symptoms that should always be investigated because they can indicate serious conditions. Indigestion, stress or relatively benign conditions may also cause them. Our medical provider at Low T Center can determine whether these are happening because of high blood pressure and what kind of treatment you need.
Additional symptoms of hypertension include headaches and difficulty breathing. If you are having severe recurring headaches, it’s worth seeing a doctor. Blood in the urine can also be an indication of high blood pressure. Shortness of breath may indicate a number of different conditions that should be evaluated.
Risk Factors for Hypertension
If you have some of the risk factors for high blood pressure along with any of the symptoms listed above, the likelihood that your symptoms are the result of hypertension may be higher. For example, if you have a family history of high blood pressure and are feeling fatigued and experiencing frequent headaches, this could be due to hypertension. A lack of exercise, being overweight, smoking, eating a poor diet and stress can also contribute to high blood pressure. It is important to keep in mind that you may have high blood pressure without symptoms, and if you have one or more of these risk factors, you should make sure that your blood pressure remains within a healthy range.
High blood pressure levels and the severity of your symptoms are among the factors we will consider at Low T Center when we create a treatment plan for you.
