What are the common symptoms of high blood pressure or hypertension?

Medically Reviewed by Checkmark Medically Reviewed By: Dr. Sravanthi Sunkaraneni

According to the American Heart Association, high blood pressure is a largely symptomless “silent killer.” As hypertension shows no warning signs or symptoms, most people with hypertension are unaware of their condition.

WHO states that some of the visible symptoms include “morning headaches, nosebleeds, irregular heart rhythms, changes in vision, and buzzing in the ears”. In severe high blood pressure cases may also cause “fatigue, nausea, vomiting, confusion, anxiety, chest pain, and muscle tremors”.

The AHA suggests that a few symptoms may be indirectly related to high blood pressure. However, it does not always cause them, such as blood spots in the eyes, facial flushing, and dizziness.
