Re: what does a hypertension headache feel like?
Before having 4 strokes, I had massive crippling headaches, so be aware of that kind of headache and get yourself to a hospital if you are having one. The kind of headache that puts you on your knees, makes you ill, drives you mad.
Short of that, hypertension does cause headaches, mine are very specific. They start up the back of my neck and spread around my hatband area. I think each of us might have different symptoms with the headache.
If your BP is un-controlled, you need help getting it there, and keeping it there. I was running around with BP's in the 200's until one day too many had arrived and I had the strokes while in the ocean...That was 8 years ago and I am still recovering.
Take good care of your BP, I wish I would have.
