They say that there are no symptoms. However I was getting really bad headaches and dizzy spells, which is way I went to the doctor. My blood pressure was so high I was given medication straight away. I have my blood pressure checked every 2 weeks until they get the mediction at the right dose. It is advisable to have regular blood pressure checks as most people get no symptoms.

I m 30 weeks pregnant and if I seem to do quite a lot I come over funny such as dizzy, blurred vision, nauseous, and genuinely just the feeling of being unwell. It does pass in about 10 minutes or so. What could this be? I thought maybe something to do with blood pressure?

Hi, Yesterday I accompanied my mother to see an Ob&Gyn doctor for gynecological complaint. Before the consultation the nurse had measured the blood pressure and was shocked to hear from the nurse that the mercury heard high at 180/100. After the specific consultation about the problem I asked the doctor why is it so and there were no symptoms of what so ever… The doctor’s answer blew me. Do you know what could be the commonest symptom for the high BP, sarcastically no symptoms and this was the answer by the doctor

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
