10 Symptoms of High Blood Pressure

Symptom #3: Headache

Hypertension often causes headaches. For this reason, many people including doctors associate certain types of headaches with hypertension. A 2018 survey of 4,356 American respondents with migraine headaches found that 21 percent of those respondents had high blood pressure. This means that, while not everyone with a headache will have hypertension, the presence of a headache can be an important high blood pressure symptom.

Hypertension headaches are more likely to occur if the condition has not been diagnosed or it is not being controlled. If you suffer from recurrent headaches, you probably need to get tested for hypertension. If the test is positive, your doctor may put you on medication to lower your blood pressure, which will also decrease the frequency and severity of the headaches.
