High Blood Pressure
Reasons behind signs and symptoms
Why does the nape hurts when you get hypertensive? Why do you get dizzy? When you get dizzy, is it the organ of corti or a part of the brain that gets stirred thats why you feel that way? Why do you get nausea and vomitting?
Hypertension is usually asymptomatic. However, severe elevations of blood pressure can cause a variety of symptoms, including headache, confusion, dizziness, somnolence, nausea and vision problems.
Such symptoms are the sign of dangerous levels of blood pressure and require immediate medical attention.
