The only way to know your blood pressure’s status is through regular checkups. This becomes more important if any of your close relative is already having high blood pressure or hypertension.
When the blood pressure is extremely high, there could be certain symptoms that may appear, including:
- Severe headache, throbbing sensation in head
- Problems in vision
- Pounding in chest, neck or ears
- Pain in chest
- Difficulty in breathing
- Irregular heartbeat
Even in the absence of above mentioned sign and symptoms, all adults should check their blood pressure at least 3-4 times in a year. These days’ easy-to-use electronic machines are available in retail shops, which make blood pressure screening easier and convenient.
