High blood pressure: Suffering from a severe headache could mean you have high BP


According to the authors of the study, high blood pressure can cause headaches because it affects the blood-brain barrier.

Hypertension can result in excess pressure on the brain, which can cause blood to leak from the blood vessels in this organ.

This causes edema, or swelling which is problematic cease the brain sits within the skull and has no space to expand.

The swelling places further pressure on the brain and causes symptoms that include a headache, dizziness, nausea, confusion, weakness, seizures and blurred vision.
