Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a prevalent chronic condition in the US. Nearly half of all American adults have high blood pressure. This condition can cause multiple and various problems throughout the body, including life-threatening events, and while it may reveal itself through symptoms like headaches, nosebleeds, or other signs, it often gives no hint of its presence.

The fact that many individuals are living with hypertension and don’t even know it makes this an especially dangerous condition. However, you can help yourself enjoy an optimal outcome through our time-tested general medicine strategies. So we invite residents of West Palm Beach, Orlando, Miami, Boca Raton, Jupiter, and Wellington, FL, to contact us today!

What does hypertension feel like?

Hypertension may not cause any obvious effects. However, it can also lead to numerous symptoms that cause pain or discomfort, including headaches, chest pain, and difficulty breathing. Some patients may also experience fatigue or confusion. Nose bleeds may signify that one has high blood pressure, and vision problems may manifest and keep you from work or other daily tasks. An irregular heartbeat or the appearance of blood in the urine are also potential signs and warrant a professional diagnosis.

However, one of the most dangerous aspects of hypertension, or high blood pressure, is that it may cause no apparent symptoms. Many individuals with heightened blood pressure may not feel any different or experience any abnormalities. If left untreated, a major, adverse health event could occur. Therefore, it’s essential to be proactive about your health by scheduling regular checkups and seeing our expert team at Gard Wellness Solutions. Detecting and diagnosing hypertension or any associated problems can provide life-saving benefits.

How can a general medicine plan help me?

Discovering potential issues allows our experienced physicians to craft a general medicine plan for your general wellness. While high blood pressure is a common affliction affecting countless millions, our range of diagnostic technologies and techniques include yearly physicals (including for sports, school, or employment), pre-and-post-op clearances, blood work, EKGs (electrocardiograms), breathing tests, and more.

We can also monitor your health and track the status of various issues, such as the previously mentioned hypertension. By keeping a health log, we can ascertain whether a treatment strategy is paying dividends and how to improve your overall outcome. Plus, resolving any budding issue will be much easier and more effective if we detect it early and jump into action as soon as possible.

By fostering a strong patient-caregiver relationship, which extends beyond seeing you as just a patient, we can craft a treatment plan based on your best outcome.
