What are the signs and symptoms?
High blood pressure doesn't usually have any symptoms. Anyone
can have high blood pressure even if they feel and look fine.
So if there are no symptoms, how do you find out whether you have
high blood pressure? The only way is to have your blood pressure
checked - which you should do regularly. And the good news is that
high blood pressure is very easy to pick up. You can have a quick,
simple and painless test from your GP or practice nurse, or you can
do it yourself with a home monitoring kit. Be aware, though, that
one-off readings are unreliable so you need to get your blood
pressure measured more than once.
