The biggest problem with high blood pressure is that more than 90% have no symptoms. Many do not even know that they have high blood pressure.

If your blood pressure is very high you can have symptoms and they include:

• Difficulty in breathing, this you can see even if you climb from one floor to another
• Chest pain
• Pain in the left shoulder which ins radiated in the whole left hand
• Irregular heartbeat
• Pounding in your chest, neck or ears
• Headache
• Confusion
• Dizziness
• Fatigue
• Nausea and vomiting
• Blurred vision
• Blood in the urine

If you have diabetes you may not feel many of these pains. It is better to control the blood pressure regularly. Once in a year is normally enough. If your blood relatives suffer from high blood pressure it should be controlled regularly.

If you have any one of the symptoms go to your doctor immediately. Untreated high blood pressure can cause heart attack, stroke, eye problems and kidney failure.

The high blood pressure could be treated well with drugs, right food and lifestyle changes.
