12 Symptoms of High Blood Pressure


3. Age.

Hypertension used to be regarded as a disease that only affected older adults, but there are growing numbers of younger adults with hypertension. While age is not a symptom, it is a warning sign to increasing blood pressure and the older you get indicates you have an increased risk for developing hypertension. Typically men of at least 45 years of age and women older than 55 are at increased risk for high blood pressure and if your parents have high blood pressure, then there is a good chance you will as well. If you are getting older, it is important to have frequent checkups from a professional.
