If you have high blood pressure, you might experience pounding in your head or chest, lightheadedness, or dizziness. Often, however, there are no symptoms. For that reason, high blood pressure often goes untreated. This can increase your risk of stroke or heart disease. High blood pressure generally develops over many years, so a quick fix isn’t likely. Finding the root cause is the best way to start planning treatment. Some therapies will help you learn to relax as you look to enjoy a full and happy life.
