What are the symptoms of high blood pressure?

Can this cause your equilibrium to be off?

High blood pressure is called "the silent killer" for a reason. there really are no symptoms. Some people say they experience headaches or become lightheaded but I have had it for about 10 years now and there really are no symptoms. There are times when I feel good but my blood pressure is extremely high. take right now for example, I just left my doctors office and my numbers were 180/114. That's very high but I feel pretty good. You should see a doctor if you have concerns.
have your blood pressure checked
you may feel dizzy and panicky
Sometimes you can have heart palpitations, ringing in your ears and swollen hands and ankles.
Often, there are no physical symptoms and thus hypertension often goes undetected and undiagnosed. It's characterized by a blood pressure that persistently exceeds 140/90 mm/Hg (that's millimeters of mercury).

If you are showing symptoms of mild to moderate HTN, you may wake up with a headache at the back of the head (occipital HA), tinnitus (ringing in the ears), lightheadedness, dizziness, easy fatigue and heart palpitations.

Malignant HTN (a potentially lethal form) presents with severe HA, blurred vision, dizziness, shortness of breath and confusion.

So, in answer to your second question, yes dizziness can throw off your balance.

you might feel dizzy sometimes, or get chest pains or heart palpitations. You might have headaches. and you might have NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL!

Whether you think you have a problem or not, it is good to get your blood pressure checked and know what your numbers are!
