Are you that one person out of five that doesn't know you have high blood pressure?

by , 05 February 2014

High blood pressure is a silent killer. Like one in five people, you may go about your daily life without feeling any obvious symptoms of high blood pressure for years! Until one day… You suddenly suffer from a heart attack or stroke. But you can prevent this simply by controlling your blood pressure.

Don’t be like one in five people and live your life with high blood pressure until one day it becomes too much for your body to handle and you suffer a heart attack or stroke!
 
High blood pressure is a silent killer, because many people don’t know they have it until it’s too late. 
 
Symptoms of high blood pressure may go undetected for years
 
Because the symptoms of high blood pressure resemble general fatigue or how you feel after you’ve exercised, you’re unlikely to give them the attention you should. 
 
 
· Severe headache
· Fatigue or confusion
· Vision problems
· Chest pain
· Difficulty breathing
· Irregular heartbeat
· Pounding in your chest, neck or ears
 
Taking note of the changes in your body that could indicate you have high blood pressure
 
Your risk of having high blood pressure increases with age, and you should have your blood pressure checked every year from the age of 40. 
 
If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, check in with your doctor or get your blood pressure checked at your local clinic. 
 
Realising that you have high blood pressure early on will help in your treatment. 
 
Don’t be a statistic!. Get your blood pressure checked today so you can take the necessary steps to controlling it.
