Check Your Blood Pressure Once You Begin To Notice These 5 Signs In Your Body

The force that blood applies to the walls of the arteries as it travels through them is measured by doctors when they take a patient's blood pressure.

The blood vessels may suffer serious harm if blood pressure is excessively high for an extended period of time. This may result in a number of issues, some of which may be fatal.

High blood pressure, or hypertension, can be controlled. Although the illness rarely manifests symptoms, routine screening can help a person determine whether preventive steps are required.

The muscle that circulates blood throughout the body is the heart. The blood carries oxygen to the body's critical organs as it moves throughout the body.

An issue with the body might occasionally make it more difficult for the heart to pump blood. This might happen, for instance, if an artery gets too small.

The artery walls may be strained by persistently high blood pressure. This may result in a number of health issues, some of which may be fatal.

The phrase "silent killer" refers to hypertension. Because it may not have any symptoms or warning indications, the majority of persons with hypertension are unaware they have a problem. It is crucial to periodically check blood pressure because of this.

According to Mayo Clinic & WebMD, doctors recommend blood pressure check once these 5 signs are noticed in the body:

1. Headache

2. Dizziness

3. Shortness of breath

4. Blurred vision

5. Chest pain
