Hello. Thank you for posting.

Usually, hypertension is defined as blood pressure above 130/80, and is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.

If you are feeling ill, don't hesitate to seek medical help. We cannot know what is causing your symptoms. A doctor can tell you more.
