Yes, rarely: It is called hypertensive encephalopathy. Symptoms include headache, restlessness, nausea, disturbances of consciousness, seizures, retinal hemorrhage and papilledema. Images of the brain can see sometimes see edema associated with specific neurological symptoms. The condition is treated with medications that decrease blood pressure.
