High blood pressure: The signs to look out for warning of a hypertensive crisis


If your blood pressure reading is 180/120 or greater and you are experiencing any other associated symptoms of target organ damage such as chest pain, shortness of breath, back pain, numbness/weakness, change in vision, or difficulty speaking then this would be considered a hypertensive emergency, warn The American Heart Association.

The health site advised to not wait to see if your pressure goes down but to rather call for emergency help.

“If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, track your blood pressure and medications.

“If possible, during an emergency, having these logs with you can provide valuable information to the medical team providing treatment,” it added.
