High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) is a condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high.
Usually hypertension is defined as pressure above 140/90, and is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120.
High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.
Eating a healthier diet with less salt, exercising regularly and taking medication can help lower pressure.
What are the signs your pressure is too high?
Symptoms include; Fatigue. Headache and Heart palpitations.
Does stress cause high pressure?
Reactions to stress can affect blood pressure
These actions increase pressure for a time. There’s no proof that stress by itself causes long-term high blood pressure. But reacting to stress in unhealthy ways can raise blood pressure and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Does coffee raise pressure?
Caffeine may cause a short, but dramatic increase in your pressure, even if you don’t have high pressure. It’s unclear what causes this spike in pressure. The blood pressure response to caffeine differs from person to person.
