Mild symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, shortness of breath, and overall fatigue can be present as early signs of this condition, and anyone feeling them for too long should seek help from a doctor.


Headaches could also be a sign, as waves of intense headaches can occur sporadically when facing the early stages of high blood pressure.
