10 Symptoms Of High Blood Pressure You Shouldn't Ignore

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a long-term medical condition in which the resting blood pressure rises and persistently remains above 130/80 mmHg. There are two types of hypertension, Primary Or Essential Hypertension and Secondary Hypertension. The first type tends to develop gradually over many years without identifiable cause. The second type tends to occur suddenly and can become more severe than primary hypertension. While hypertension has no noticeable symptoms, you need to take a blood pressure reading if any of the following signs occur.

High Blood Pressure Symptom #1: Nosebleeds 

If you have high blood pressure, you may be more prone to nosebleeds, otherwise known as epistaxis. In general, nosebleeds are not a classic sign of high blood pressure. A study from the Vienna General Hospital in Greece showed that 17% of emergency patients treated for high blood pressure at the hospital suffered from recurrent nosebleeds.

If the increased pressure ruptures some of the tiny blood capillaries within the nose, it will cause nosebleeds. If you experience frequent nosebleeds, you may have high blood pressure and need a blood pressure test.
