In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, an overview of high blood pressure with two symptoms one should look out for was further investigated.
The study noted: “Blood pressure readings have two values that are always listed together: 128/85 mmHg, for example.
“The first number represents the pressure in the blood vessels when the heart muscles squeeze (systolic blood pressure).
“The second represents the pressure in the blood vessels when the heart muscles relax (diastolic blood pressure).
“Blood pressure is considered to be too high if the systolic value is over 140 and/or the diastolic value is over 90.
“High blood pressure itself usually goes unnoticed. Only if it is extremely high can it result in symptoms like dizziness or vision problems.”
