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
I know that high blood pressure is called the silent killer. Can some people physically feel when they happen to have HBP from time to time? Sweats?
Yes, but uncommonly.: More commonly, the symptoms of high blood pressure (if they occur) include blurry vision, headaches, blood in the urine (urine discoloration), chest discomfort / pressure, throbbing / pounding in the ears. If you have an aneurysm, back pain or other neurologic symptoms may develop. The symptoms may be subtle. The best detection is a blood pressure monitor that you can pick up at any pharmacy. ...Read more
Multiple causes: There are many causes of high BP. Aging and hardening of arteries are the most common causes. Very few have cure. The treatments can be directed to the specific causes, if known. However, essential hypertension is one when the cause is unknown. Most high BP can be controlled but not cured by behavioral treatment, lifestyle modification, diet, exercise, weight loss and medication. ...Read more

Yes, indeed. Get Rx: Branch and central vein occlusion are a known cause of blurred vision in hypertensive patients. Early treatment of both the hypertension and the vein occlusion is essential because damage to the retina can be irreversible if ignored. Early treatment with growth factor inhibitors and steroids can restore vision. Other types of damage can occur to the retina with chronic high blood pressure. ...Read more
Yes: Having high blood pressure can be associated with increased sensitivity to salt. Even very small changes in your salt intake can lead to increased edema. Alternatively, some blood pressure medications can cause swelling (norvasc) or there could be a problem with your veins in the legs or your heart causing the swelling. Anytime you have sudden changes in swelling you should be checked. ...Read more
Not likely: Unless the pressure is staggeringly high, there is usually no effect on the vision. Wavy vision should be investigated by your ophthalmologist especially if it is of recent onset. Blood pressure does need control for other reasons (heart, brain) but not for alterations in eye vision. ...Read more
NOT cause and effect: Both are due to a common cause that your autonomic (automatic) nervous system is unbalanced and you have dysautonomia. Commonest acquired cause is poor diet and you may have diabetes that also is associated with ed. Try a supplement of b complex + magnesium + multivitamin and get rid of all forms of sugar and sweetreners. ...Read more
Yes: Sudden increases in blood pressure (BP) (especially in patients with history of high blood pressure) can lead to a condition called hypertensive encephalopathy. Besides seizures, headaches, confusion, among other neurological symptoms may be present in this condition. If you have high bp, it's recommended you follow advice of your doctor to keep your BP in check. Hope that helps! ...Read more
Not the main:
Hypertension causes left ventricular hypertrophy and strain and heart failure.
Concomitant coronary disease can occur and infarction can happen

Tinnitus and BP: Tinnitus, or ringing in your ears, can indeed be made more noticeable by high blood pressure. Also, some of the diuretics, like lasix, (furosemide) which are occasionally prescribed for hypertension may cause or worsen tinnitus. This effect usually subsides when the medication is stopped. ...Read more
Accepted answer is that LABILE (episodic) hypertension does not cause hypertensive heart disease...I believe that has been "debunked" and the general answer now is that there are medications which regularize episodic hypertension AFTER the REASON for this blood pressure picture is determined and certain medical conditions ruled out!
Hope this helps

Depends upon: What you mean by head problems. High blood pressure, not controlled, can cause headaches, blindness, and even strokes and death. Is that enough problems to stimulate you to take better control of your blood pressure? By the way, hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) can increase your risks of diabetes and cholesterol abnormalities. There are other better blood pressure medications available. ...Read more
Yes: Extremely high blood pressures (usually greater than 200 mmhg for the top number) can result in "end organ" damage including changes to the retinal arteries and short-term vision changes. If you're concerned that your high blood pressure is changing your vision, you should see your doctor to discuss treatment options. ...Read more

There are excellent meds to lower bp, both in the acute phase in the hospital and as a routine outpatient med. Please get evaluated. ...Read more
Hypertension (HTN) can resulting in ischemia and abnormality of the conduction system of the heart which may slow heart rate.
After a head injury HTN and a slow heart rate are signs that there may be increase in intra-cranial pressure.
There is also a phenomena where correcting a slow heart rate might resolve HTN see link below.

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) (Definition)
Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure occurs when blood pressure is 140/90 or higher. A systolic blood pressure (top number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum contraction and a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum relaxation. ...Read more
