In brief: There are none
Hypertension (high blood pressure) typically has no symptoms.
This is one of the things that makes it hard to treat. We treat hypertension to prevent strokes, heart and kidney disease. It is frequently involved in diabetes and obesity. People with obstructive sleep apnea often have high blood pressure. While it is associated with all of these diseases, it has no symptoms of its own.

In brief: Usually, none.
Chronic high blood pressure, known as hypertension, is usually a disease without symptoms.
That is why is is called " the silent killer". Some individuals may experience early morning headaches which may awaken them from sleep. Some may experience ringing in the ears, also known as tinnitus. Additional symptoms may include fatigue or irritability. Chest pain or shortness of breath may occur.
