High blood pressure: Blood from this body part is a warning

3 min

High blood pressure is insidious in that it doesn’t produce any visible warning signs initially, but overtime, a high reading can be life-threatening. Fortunately, the condition can be reversed by making simple dietary tweaks. However, it largely depends on knowing your numbers and recognising the early signs to ensure early treatment and proper management. Blood secreted from this region in the body could be a way of telling you that your pressure is becoming too high and that you may be at risk of even more serious health complications.

High blood pressure naturally goes up and down throughout the day, but a consistently high reading is a grave concern.

The reason why is because over time, high blood pressure can cause the arteries to lose their stretchiness and become stiff or narrow.


This constant narrowing makes it easier for fatty material to clog them up and clogged arteries are the leading cause of heart attacks.

This is why it is so vital for one to keep their blood pressure in check and be aware of unusual symptoms in the body.

Most people with high blood pressure have no signs or symptoms, even if blood pressure readings reach dangerously high levels.

A few people with high blood pressure may have headaches, shortness of breath but these signs and symptoms are not specific and usually don’t occur until high blood pressure has reached a severe or life-threatening stage.

If a person has sudden nose bleeds this could be a signal of dangerously high blood pressure levels.


There are a variety of health conditions which could be the reason for the nosebleed. Liver disease, kidney disease, chronic alcohol consumption or another underlying health condition can lower a person’s blood’s ability to clot and therefore cause the nose to bleed. 


Heart conditions such as hypertension and congestive heart failure can also cause nosebleeds, as can hypersensitive crisis such as a sudden, rapid increase in blood pressure that may be accompanied by a severe headache, shortness of breath and anxiety, according to the American Heart Association.

Colds, allergies and frequent nose-blowing can also irritate the lining on the nose resulting in a nosebleed.

Reduce stress to lower reading

With everything that is going on in the world right now, it’s easy to get bogged down and begin to worry.

However, chronic stress may contribute to high blood pressure. More research is needed on the subject to determine the effects of chronic stress on blood pressure.

Occasional stress can also contribute to high blood pressure and if a person reacts by stress eating unhealthy food, dangerous consequences could ensue.

How to lower your stress to reduce your risk

Mayo clinic advised: “Take some time to think about what causes you to feel stressed, such as work, family, finances or illness. Once you know what’s causing your stress, consider how you can eliminate or reduce stress.

“If you can’t eliminate all your stressors, you can at least cope with them in a healthier way. Try to:


“Change your expectations: Plan your day and focus on your priorities. Avoid trying to do too much and learn to say no. Understand there are some things you can’t change or control, but you can focus on how you react to them

“Avoid stress triggers: Try to avoid triggers when you can. For example, if rush-hour traffic on the way to work causes stress, try leaving earlier in the morning, or take public transportation. Avoid people who cause you stress if possible.”
