In brief: You feel fine.
The most common symptom of high blood pressure is nothing! patients tend to feel fine.
By the time you develop headaches, chest pain or shortness of breath you have probably had uncontrolled high blood pressure for a long time. The only way to know how your blood pressure is doing is to have it measured by a trained professional.

High blood pressure is called the silent killer because the vast majority of people feel nothing .
If you are lucky enough you will feel headaches possible nosebleeds.
