What is the symptoms of high blood pressure?


High blood pressure is often associated with few or no symptoms. Many people have it for years without knowing it. However, just because high blood pressure is often symptom-less doesn't mean it is harmless.
In fact, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or hypertension, causes damage to your arteries. High blood pressure is also a risk factor for stroke, heart attack, and other cardiovascular problems.

MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS 145/90. I am 71. i AM OTHERWISE HEALTHY. SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT THIS


Rena: Normal blood pressure is a reading below 120/80. Your bottom number is a little too high. Here is where to start: decrease salt in your diet. Try to decrease stress (like taking a stress management class). Increase your daily exercise. Herbs that may help lower blood pressure include basil, cinnamin, flaxseed, garlic, ginger, hawthorn, celery seed, French lavendar, and cat's claw (but NOT the real cat!) :) Take your blood pressure at different times of the day and keep a record. Uncontrolld high blood pressure can lead to stroke by damaging and weakening your brain's blood vessels, causing them to narrow, rupture or leak. High blood pressure can also cause blood clots to form in the arteries leading to your brain, blocking blood flow and potentially causing a stroke. I used to work in a dialysis clinic and there were always plenty of men that did not control their blood pressure for many years and eventually wore out their kidneys. If you consistently stay above the recommended numbers, go see your doctor.

Hi My 78 yr old mom, suffers from diabetes,high blood and cholesteral. She had a stroke 4 yrs ago. Now her left arm has pain, and the skin of the left arm is peeling, looks like sunburn.


Hello Denise Bennett,

Old age is bad enough... but tossing on
high BP, cholesterol issues and stroke issues... topped with diabetes's ... things become quite treacherous...

Even the most talented DOCTOR...
with psychic powers would be foolish to tell you
anything but to treat this as an URGENT MATTER...
and get down to ER ... (EMERGENCY ROOM)

NOW ... Don't freak out... Just do it NOW.

I am a 64 year old woman and my blood pressure has been high for years. My blood pressure is now 117/72. Is that now too low?


Sounds like a pretty decent blood pressure to me. Of course, see a doctor if you're concerned.

Is blood pressure 91 over 62 to low? i am a 63 year old man.


not really unless you suffer blackouts
when doing your own pressure checks , talk with a doctor first to get safe parameters , when to test, when to drink water ( hydrate) and what is considered high enough to seek medical aid
remember when getting advice about your health , you talk with a doctor , not to the world as there are many different opinions that could lead you to a false conclusion

Blood pressure is 120/49


I am sure this is a concerning matter. every patient is different, it would be best that a qulified doctor checks the man to ensure he is ok, as well as blood pressure, blood condition and other details would need to be taken. phone a doctor, health center or hospital for best advice.

Does high blood pressures med.cause you to have memory problems? And is there a way to get back off high blood pressure meds.?


As you know from watching television, all medications have many potential side effects. However, having said that, as a working RN for 25 years, I have never heard of blood pressure meds causing memory problems. If anything, it is the other way around: high blood pressure may cause decreased circulation to the brain and therefore possibly cause some memory loss. The thing about blood pressure meds is this: they are very very important! If you allow high blood pressure to go untreated, you can damage your eyes and your kidneys, both which have tons of small blood vessels. You can also wind up having a stroke. Generally, it is unsafe to get off blood pressure medications on your own.

I NEED AN OWNERS MANUAL FOR BA-616W ...GOT IT 2 YRS AGO AND ONLY HAVE THE INSTRUCTION SHEET ..BUT I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ THE NUMBERS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. PLEASE HELP


As a 30 year EMT, I think I can help you.

There's 2 numbers that make up your blood pressure. The top number is called the Systolic pressure. The bottom number is call the Diastolic pressure. When a blood pressure is taken, it's measuring the pressure that the heart is producing when it pumps blood through the arteries. For example, what's considered a normal blood pressure in a healthy individual is in the range of 120/80. Of course age, life style and other health conditions, play a role in what yours may be. A person with High blood pressure or Hypertension would have a blood pressure of over 160 - Systolic and over 90+ Diastolic. 90 is actually the borderline for hypertension. That's why I indicated 90+.

The other reading on your monitor is your heart rate or pulse rate. It's how many beats your heart completes in one minute. It also indicates an irregular heart beat by the showing a small LED window on the left of the screen adjacent to the Systolic pressure reading, It will say IHB. Any movement or shaking or talking during the measurement can result in pulse irregularities. So hold very still when taking your blood pressure. This irregularity by itself is not of much concern, unless it shows up frequently. In which case, you should seek medical advice.

That covers just about all there is to know about what the readings mean. Armed with this, you should be able to effectively monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate and report them to your doctor.

Hope I was able to help you understand how it works and what it's telling you. if so, please let me know, by rating my response to you. Thanks and have a healthy day.
