10 symptoms of high blood pressure

6 Confusion

Confusion can be defined as the lack of order or clarity in a person’s ideas or activities. This symptom is more closely related to the hypertensive crisis than chronic hypertension.

It is important to know that this is not a common symptom, so it’s recommended to visit a doctor as soon as possible.

7 Breathing difficulties

Breathing difficulties are usually caused by a heart disease, so when a hypertensive person has this symptom they must visit a cardiologist in order to determine the problem.

Early on, breathing difficulties normally only appear when the patient has performed strenuous exercise, but in advanced stages of heart disease, it can happen even if the patient performs their regular daily activities.
