Warning signs of hypertension

There are some warning signs that are indicative of high blood pressure. The first signs, however, are often nonspecific and develop insidiously. This means that they are difficult to make sense of for those affected. Difficulties falling asleep and sleeping through the night, a restless sleep, slight irritability and inner restlessness may be possible consequences of increased blood pressure. Problems with the ears (tinnitus, noise in the ear) are also possible warning signals.

If increased headache or dizziness occurs under psychological or physical stress, this can also be an indication of hypertension. In women around 50, high blood pressure symptoms may appear to be similar to the symptoms of menopause (hot flushes, dizziness, mood fluctuations). In middle age men, untreated hypertension can emerge as problems associated with virility (erectile dysfunction).

A shortness of breath, chest pain and/or tightness in the chest during exertion can be possible symptoms of heart disease which have possibly developed due to sustained hypertension. Arrhythmia may also be caused by hypertension.

In the case of persistent warning signs affecting your body, you should consult a specialist for internal medicine for an evaluation of the complaints.
