High blood pressure or hypertension is also known as “the silent killer” — so named as it increases the risk of heart attack and stroke but often goes unnoticed because of its lack of obvious symptoms.

In fact, you may have high blood pressure and not even know it. 

A study published in the journal Nature evaluated different hypertensive crisis symptoms according to their prevalence.

The study sought to characterize the profile of hypertensive crisis over the course of one year in a university reference hospital and perform a review of the literature.

The study monitored 362 patients who presented for treatment at the emergency hospital with hypertensive crisis.

One of the most common symptoms found in the study group was paresthesia.

Paresthesia refers to a burning or prickling sensation that is usually felt in the hands, arms, legs, or feet, but can also occur in other parts of the body.

The sensation, which happens without warning, is usually painless and described as tingling or numbness, skin crawling, or itching.

Other symptoms included:

  • Chest pain
  • Dyspnea
  • Headache
  • Neurological deficit
  • Dizziness.
