High blood pressure

High blood pressure is hypertension and this is due to an increase in pressure within the arteries as blood pushes through the artery walls. This condition could be a symptom of an underlying medical condition and frequent hypertension should never be overlooked. Aside from a high blood pressure reading there is also a nagging pain over the nape of the neck, an overwhelming feeling in the head and a feeling of weakness over body and some may even feel dizzy due to the symptom.
