Can High Blood Pressure Cause Seizures
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Is there any known correlation between high blood pressure and seizures (or high blood pressure causing seizures)? Or vice versa? Thank you!

A frequent consequence of high BP is stroke which often then evokes seizures. Both can occur in some types of hydrocephalus. During some seizures BP either rises or might fall. It's not clear if either is ever the cause. ...Read more
Hello. Since I don't have a clear idea of what you are describing and I don't know if this just started or if it is a chronic condition, I will provide the following. Here are some possible symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack.
I may be way off with my response. But when I see back and heart pain listed together it makes me wonder. If you are having acute symptoms that are listed above get emergency assistance. However, if this is chronic pain, than it is likely not the cause. ...Read more
I have high blood pressure what can I do to lower it as I have no insurance to go to a doctor I also have had a tia, sezuries, and numerous other problems?

Not sure why you wouldn't've tried signing up? Also, you may solicit assistance from your state if you do not have the means to purchase coverage. More questions?
