4. Pains in the chest
Angina, a form of chest pain, is the beginning of an impending heart attack. This pain in the chest comes to be when the heart is made to work harder than usual. That occurs when high blood pressure causes the accumulation of plaque in the coronary arteries, depriving the heart of much-needed oxygen and nutrient. Without proper treatment, it will eventually wholly damage the coronary arteries and lead to a heart attack.
Besides chest pains, you may also experience shortness of breath, numbness, back pains, or nausea.
