Patient Comments: High Blood Pressure - Symptoms

What were your symptoms of high blood pressure?

Comment from: dujean, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: November 07

My symptom is a pounding headache. Since I do not normally have a headache, when this happens, I immediately take my blood pressure. The reading is usually 180 (systolic) or higher, and 90 and above.
