One of the dangerous facts about high blood pressure is you don’t readily know if you have it or not because the symptoms are sometimes faint. It is said that one-third of patients with high blood pressure don’t know that they have one. To know for sure, the only way to know is through a trip to your doctor’s office.

If you have your suspicions and if high blood pressure is prevalent among your relatives, it’s best to have a check-up.

Below are some of the symptoms of high blood pressure:

  • Pounding in vein points like the chest, neck, and ears area.
  • Blood in your urine.
  • Irregular heartbeat.
  • Difficulty when it comes to breathing.
  • Pain in the chest.
  • Troubles with vision.
  • Tiredness.
  • Headache.

If you’re having any or a combination of these symptoms for a while now, have yourself checked immediately. If left untreated, high blood pressure could lead to stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, and eye problems.

What is low blood pressure and what are its symptoms

Low blood pressure or hypotension is the abnormally low blood pressure of your cardiovascular system. With low blood pressure, blood doesn’t easily reach the important cells of your body.

Some of the symptoms of low blood pressure are lightheadedness, dizziness, and fainting. The symptoms of low blood pressure are heavily felt when a person from a lying position abruptly stands up.

Severe and chronic low blood pressure has almost the same effects as that of high blood pressure. Low blood pressure could lead to stroke, heart attack, or kidney failure. It could also lead to shock.

The causes of low blood pressure range from an inadequate amount of blood, heart disease, and side effects of certain medications.

Should you take CBD on an Empty Stomach or Full?

High blood pressure and low blood pressure are typically treated with prescribed medications coming from physicians. Sometimes, people turn to organic alternatives, like CBD (cannabidiol) oil. In the instance that you and your doctor mutually agreed to let you try CBD, there are certain guidelines to consider. For example, what’s safer, taking CBD on a full or empty stomach?

There’s a bit of fake information making rounds on the internet lately about CBD. If you know how digestion works, it will dawn on you that CBD should be taken in on a full stomach. You could take CBD right before or after a meal.

Final thought

Again, education, when it comes to symptoms as well as how to take your medicines, is a must to better take care of your body. Research more on articles like this with references from credible resources. Don’t easily believe in what you see online, or you might suffer anxiety from it.

The best way to go when in doubt is to consult with your doctor. Whether it’s taking CBD or getting properly diagnosed, they’re the best people to consult with.
