Reasons & Symptoms:
High blood pressure is classified as either primary high blood pressure or secondary high blood pressure. More than 90% of cases are primary, defined as high blood pressure due to nonspecific lifestyle and genetic factors. The remaining 5 to 10% of cases are categorized as secondary high blood pressure, defined as high blood pressure due to an identifiable cause. Some with high blood pressure report insomnia, headaches, as well as lightheadedness, vertigo, tinnitus (buzzing or hissing in the ears), altered vision or fainting episodes.
