What Is Hypertension?

Hypertension is when the pressure of your blood circulation is too high.

How To Understand Blood Pressure Readings?

A blood pressure reading is written in this format: 120/80mmHg. It’s read as “120 over 80.”

  • Normal: A reading of 120 over 80 (120/80)
  • Elevated: 120-129/80
  • Stage 1 high blood pressure: 130-139/80-89
  • Stage 2 high blood pressure: Above 140/Above 90

Our experienced hypertension doctors will discuss your health and counsel you on preventative care and healthy choices.

Hypertension is also known as the “silent killer” because most people with this disease are unaware of the problem due to the absence of any warning signs or symptoms. Untreated high blood pressure increases your risk of severe health problems, including stroke, heart attack, and heart failure. Fortunately, high blood pressure can easily be detected and once you know you have been diagnosed, you can work with UrgentWay primary & urgent care doctors to control it.

Symptoms Of Hypertension

Certain symptoms include early morning headaches, irregular heart rhythms, nosebleeds, vision changes, vomiting, confusion, and buzzing in the ears. Severe hypertension can cause fatigue, nausea, anxiety, blood in the urine, difficulty breathing, muscle tremors, and chest pain.

The only way to diagnose hypertension early is to have a hypertension doctor measure your blood pressure. UrgentWay’s healthcare professionals provide accurate hypertension evaluation and treatment plans.
