Whether we visit our doctor for a sniffle or a cough, it’s important to take control of our health. If only we had an automatic defense to ward against high blood pressure, perhaps we wouldn’t feel the need to worry as much. The symptoms of high blood pressure can mask themselves under a myriad of other illnesses and are no laughing matter.
Although there are quite a few things we can do to reduce the likelihood of developing symptoms of high blood pressure, there are other things that are out of our control. Many have experienced a waxing and waning dizzy sensation, which has also been attributed to ear canal dysfunction.
As we ripen with age, we can also improve, but sometimes the bodily functions begin to decline. When the arteries begin to harden it makes the heart rate increase, causing the blood flow to increase as well, since the heart has to work harder for the body to receive the oxygen and nutrients it needs to survive.
When we are out of breath easily, we might assume that we are out of shape, but this is also one of the symptoms of high blood pressure. Age is a risk factor that becomes problematic prior to the fourth decade of living. Men and women can equally suffer from high blood pressure symptoms, although the female population tends to develop this disease later in life.
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is also widely reported as being as problem for many people. In fact at least 50% of the people with high blood pressure are thought to be women. Women who have succumbed to the symptoms of high blood pressure are on the rise as well. Women tend to notice warning signs of high blood pressure during pregnancy.
Men and women alike face the grim effects of high blood pressure and our numbers will increase as we age if we’re oblivious. Some symptoms include not being able to lay down without a hard time breathing, and shortness of breath during regular daily routines.
If the last few blood pressure readings we have had in a doctor’s office were high, this should be a gentle warning sign. We cannot always control every symptom of high blood pressure but if we have an opportunity to successfully take matters into our own hands, we should take the initiative.
In the end no matter our gender, we are all readily exposed to this disease. Even those of us who feel fine should make it a point to visit a doctor on a regular basis. After all, the symptoms of high blood pressure caused by “White Coat Syndrome” are temporary.
