This is reflected in the symptoms like feeling of weakness, headache, upset stomach, aching and tense muscles, restlessness, interrupted sleep hours, chest pains and so on.

But here I would share my own experiences when my abnormal blood pressure was diagnosed.

I remember, during that particular days, I was working under tremendous pressure in my office, I could not even have time to share my state of mind with my dear ones. All my natural routines had become sort of mechanical process. For example, one afternoon I just could not remember what I had in my lunch half an hour ago. I tried and tried, but just could not remember. I tried to brush aside that subject, thinking that may be it was some thing peculiar pertaining to that day. But to my amazement, in next few days, I observed the same thing. I just could not remember well what I had in my breakfast or lunch. Not only that, to my surprise, I just could not remember the taste of the vegetable and salad I had, or whether I had pickle in my lunch or not.

Apart from that there were no other significant symptoms in my system that I noticed.

it had been so long, I did not enjoy sunrise or the sunset.
for a long long time I had not observed the trees, flowers, birds welcoming rising sun.
I used to interact with my family members at the minimum scale.
I was not particular about the color preference of my formal dress.
for a long long duration I did not remember the occasions when I enjoyed taking luxury bath.
I had nearly nil occasions shared with my close friends.
I could not enjoy my favorite hobby of listening music.
My smoking had increased.
I was not able to enjoy my lunch or dinner
I could not engage myself in my favorite hobby of reading.

So this is how I then consulted my physician who prescribed tablets for me for controlling my BP. And thus I started taking BP tablets twice a day on regular basis. There is no option.
