Which symptoms do you get if you have high blood pressure?

Usually none. Most people with high BP dont get symptoms, until they have a heart attack or a stroke (part of brain dies from bleeding into it). That is why high blood pressure is called the "silent killer." however, some people have headache, blurry vision, chest pain, or out of breath with very high blood pressure. Read more...

Do people transient ischemic attack have high blood pressure? Do they have hbd while have the symptoms?

Yes they do. Blood clots atherosclerosis blood clots can float downstream from the heart and get caught in a tiny blood vessel (embolus) debris can occlude the blood vessels and stop blood flow. Blood vessels can leak and cause bleeding within the brain tissue. An intracerebral hemorrhage is often caused by high blood pressure which can cause small blood vessel walls to become thin and weak.

Frequently yes. Tia's often reflect reduced perfusion to the smaller blood vessels in the brain. This happens from persistent vessel wall thickening (an adaptation in chronic htn). In addition to bleeding possibilities (which more typically cause persistent symptoms, not transient), minor fluctuations in cerebral perfusion can cause transient symptoms in patients with thickened, pruned distal cerebral vessels.

Yes. High blood pressure is a common risk factor for tia. Patients having TIA often present with high blood pressure as well. Since TIA is often caused by lack of blood flow to the brain, the body tries to elevate the blood pressure to ensure proper perfusion of the brain. Read more...

What symptoms are common in high blood pressure?

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...

What are the symptoms of chronic high blood pressure?

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...
