There are currently thousands of diseases that put the lives of millions of people in the United States at risk, however, among all these risk factors there is always one that is more prevalent than the others and that is much more dangerous: high blood pressure.
What makes this disease really dangerous is how silent it is, because unlike other medical issues that cause all kinds of symptoms that can be detected early, high blood pressure could cause a sudden stroke without the person ever knowing that he or she was at risk of suffering from it.
Statistics show that one out of every three adults suffers from hypertension, most of whom probably don’t even know it yet, since the usual thing is to realize that you suffer from it when you start to feel really bad. That’s why it’s so important to get regular checkups and try to lead a healthier lifestyle that avoids its early onset.
Next, for all those who suffer or think they suffer from it, we are going to briefly explain what hypertension is and how to treat some of its symptoms.
WHAT IS HYPERTENSION AND WHAT ARE ITS SYMPTOMS?
Blood pressure is a disease that consists of the progressive obstruction of the arteries throughout the body, causing blood flow to be much slower and the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke to increase. The main risk factor of this disease is a sedentary life, smoking and an unhealthy diet rich in fats; although it can also be suffered by someone who is very healthy due to a genetic background.
As for the symptoms produced by high blood pressure, there is not much to say, since as it is a silent disease, its symptoms are scarce and only when it produces some serious side effect (such as a mild heart attack) is it known that one is suffering from it. However, there is one symptom that usually prevails in the vast majority of patients suffering from hypertension: headaches.
Headaches can appear significantly when suffering from hypertension, although there is also the possibility of not suffering from them; experts have not reached agreement on this subject. The reason why people with high blood pressure may suffer recurrent headaches is hypertensive crisis, also known as malignant hypertension.
MALIGNANT HYPERTENSION AND HOW TO TREAT IT
Malignant hypertension occurs when the tension levels are too high, causing the internal tension of the skull to increase and trigger a very intense headache. This pain has nothing to do with that which produces migraines or habitual headaches, but is much more intense and no traditional treatment based on anti-inflammatory drugs can calm it down.
