High Blood Pressure patients are numerous, but about 50% of the patients did not know they have this disease. Because many patients with high blood pressure have no symptoms, even if their blood pressure reached a very high level (SBP > 200 mmHg), their bodies have adapted to this blood pressure, but the damage of blood pressure to blood vessels is stealthily occured, this is putting patients at risk.
Some patients with high blood pressure may have headache, dizziness, feeling of fullness in the head, stiff neck, nose bleed, numbness of limbs, memory loss, dysphoria, lose sleep, snore, and so on. If you have these symptoms, check your blood pressure.
Symptoms of High Blood Pressure include:
Dizziness. Dizziness is the most common symptom of high blood pressure. Some are transient which often occur after sudden squat or stand up, and some are sustained.

Headache. Headache is also a frequent symptom of high blood pressure, mostly the patient will have a feeling of persistent dull pain or throbbing pain, and even burst-like pain. The headache often occurs when wake up in the morning, and the symptom will gradually ease after getting up and meal. The location of the pain is mostly at the temple and the back side of the head.
Hemorrhage. Since high blood pressure can cause arterial sclerosis, blood vessel elasticity loss, fragility, therefore, the blood vessel is easy to break and bleed. Among which the epistaxis is more common, followed by subconjunctival hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhage, cerebral hemorrhage, according to the statistics, about 70 percent of patients who suffer from nasal bleeding have high blood pressure.
Irascibility, insomnia. Patients with high blood pressure are mostly irritable, sensitive, and easily excited. Moreover, more common are the palpitation and insomnia, patients with insomnia is suffered from difficulty falling asleep or early awakening, light sleep, nightmares, and waking up with a start.

Usually it can be improved after appropriate treatment, but if the limb numbness is Stubborn and of long duration, appears at a fixed location on a limb, and is accompanied by limb weakness, cramps and jumping pain, the patients should timely go to the hospital for treatment to prevent the stroke.
Impaired concentration, hypomnesis. This symptom is not obvious in the early stage, but will gradually increase with the progression of the disease. One of the reasons why the patients are willing to seek for treatment is that the impaired concentration and hypomnesis are really distressing things in regular life, patients are easily distracted, suffered from memory loss and often difficult to remember things happened recently, but the things such as in the childhood can be recalled clearly by the patients.
Snore Loudly. Patients sleep with loud snoring, there are more than 30 times of apnea during the sleep, each apnea lasts more than 10 seconds, this is called sleep apnea syndrome, more than about half of this type of patients are with high blood pressure, their fluctuation of blood pressure is large, blood pressure will not reduce during sleep, and some patients' nighttime blood pressure is even higher than daytime blood pressure, this type of high blood pressure is not easy to be found, because seeing the doctor often happens during the day, the doctor can not measure the blood pressure at night. It is recommended to do a dynamic blood pressure measurement.
