There are usually no symptoms for high blood pressure - this is why it is called the silent killer.

The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to get it checked by your doctor, practice nurse or pharmacist and to know your blood pressure numbers. This is a painless procedure and only takes a few minutes.
