Hypertension or high blood pressure is a condition where the increase in systolic blood is above the normal limit of more than 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure of more than 90 mmHg. Measurement of blood pressure can be called hypertension if the results of this high measurement are obtained in two measurements with an interval of five minutes in a state of sufficient rest or calm.
Hypertension itself is known as the "silent killer" or a silent killer and causes sudden death. This is because the symptoms in each patient can vary and are almost the same as the symptoms of other diseases. Even some people with hypertension have no symptoms at all.
However, some people with hypertension may also experience some symptoms such as headache or heaviness in the neck, dizziness or vertigo, irregular heartbeat and frequent palpitations, chest pain, difficulty breathing, easy to feel tired or confused, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, and nosebleeds.
If you feel the symptoms as above, you should not do a self-diagnosis. Consult with the right people to get the right diagnosis and solution. mDoc friends can do teleconsultation with trusted doctors on the mDoc by mHealthbank application which can be downloaded on the Playstore and Appstore.
