“Unlike moderate high blood pressure, a hypertensive emergency has very noticeable symptoms,” said the medical website.
“A hypertensive emergency requires immediate medical attention. If you don’t get emergency treatment, you may develop serious health problems.
“Your doctor will ask you about your health history, including any treatments you’re on for high blood pressure.
“They’ll also measure your blood pressure and discuss any symptoms you’re currently having, such as changes in vision, chest pain, or shortness of breath.”
