Unhappy High Blood Pressure Symptoms

Just a quick question,, can one of the symptoms of high blood pressure be a spaced-out feeling / "foggy brain" feeling and mild dizziness?

Re: High Blood Pressure Symptoms

On a side note, the symptoms you describe can also describe Thyroid disorders and Anxiety.

Re: High Blood Pressure Symptoms

definitely. you can feel a tightness in your being. how high is high for you?
trust your doctor and find out IF it is hypertension and WHY. that's my advice.

Re: High Blood Pressure Symptoms

hi there, i don't know what happened to my last reply....anyways YES high blood pressure can make you feel exactly like that. it's usually HIGH when you feel like that. tell your doctor you want to know WHY you have high blood pressure, get yourself a wrist monitor and monitor it at home yourself and bring him/her the readings.
Good luck......

Re: High Blood Pressure Symptoms

I think to those symptoms, you can add an increased number of headaches.

Re: High Blood Pressure Symptoms

sounds like my symptoms. monitor it yourself with a wrist monitor and you will find that when you feel like that, your BP is up. Good luck.
