Intermittent Blood Pressure Symptoms
I just took two blood pressure pills by mistake. Should I be worried? I am not having any symptoms as yet.
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

Depends on degree: Mild or moderate changes in blood pressure will usually not produce any symptoms. However, more significant (or sudden) changes in BP may produce symptoms. Low BP may produce dizziness, weakness or malaise, sometimes with blurry or spotty vision, shakiness or even nausea. Conversely, high BP may produce headache or pulsatilla pressure, sometimes with blurry vision or nausea. ...Read more
Very severe: When BP exceeds 200/120, it approaches a level considered to be a hypertensive urgency or emergency. The symptoms can be angina (chest discomfort), heart failure (shortness of breath), or encephalopathy (confusion and sometimes headache). But understand: headache is common and is infrequently associated with high blood pressure. ...Read more
Varies - Often None: High blood pressure or hypertension is without symptoms in the majority of patients. One may have dull headaches, shortness of breath, dizzy spells, or more occasional nose bleeds. The major casualty of hypertension results from the longstanding effects of hypertension on the heart, blood vessels, and kidneys, this more likely when blood pressure is very uncontrolled (>180/120 vs 135/85). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
May be nothing until: For many years, hypertension is unknown as a silent killer. Because it typically does not have easily recognizable symptoms until late. Such as severe headaches, strokes, heart attacks etc. Chronic hypertension is known to cause atherosclerosis, increases risk of heart attacks/strokes etc. Thus recommended to be treated adequately. So, don't wait for symptoms. Consult your doc early. Good luck. ...Read more

Generally none: In most cases, you cannot feel your elevated BP even though anecdotally, people think they do. In a hypertensive crisis (bp ranging around >200/>110, more likely >240/>120), one may have confusion (encephalopathy), shortness of breath (heart failure) or chest discomfort (angina). Acute renal failure, which you can't feel, also occurs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

None reliable...: There are few reliable, predictable symptoms of high blood pressure unless it is extremely high or 'too late'. For instance, if way too high, the eyes and brain don't like it and the retina of the eye can thicken or hemorrhage causing visual loss or distortion. Mental status changes and headaches can ensue. At worst, stroke. Mild high blood pressure has no reliable symptoms, so get it checked! ...Read more
May be none: Uncomplicated high blood pressure is often asymptomatic. There may be vague symptoms of headache and if the blood pressure becomes too high, changes in mental status. Most of the symptoms arise from the complications, e.g., heart failure, myocardial infarction, renal failure, stroke, peripheral vascular disease etc. ...Read more
