Abstract

Background: Hypertension with serious cardiovascular, cerebral, renal complications is an important factor of mortality in the world. Recognizing its symptoms together with its
associated signs can be effective in preventing complications of hypertension. For this reason, researchers began the study aiming at surveying initial symptoms of hypertension.
Methods: This study was descriptive-analytical and the participants included all patients referring to the special clinics of Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences during the study.

Participants were 182 and sampling was based on the availability. A questionnaire was used to collect data. After the collected data were coded, data analysis was performed using SPSS version 16. Chi-square statistical test was used for data analysis.
Results: The findings showed that headache, nausea and sleep disorder in patients with hypertension were reported more significantly (P<0.05). Blurred vision was the major symptom observed in staffs as well as the smokers. Also, it revealed that people with family records of hypertension had experienced less blurred vision.
Conclusion: Headache, nausea, sleep disorder and blurred vision were the symptoms observed in most hypertensive patients in the study. Therefore, further studies can reveal the symptoms felt when experiencing hypertension and that these symptoms can be
introduced to medical authorities as a warning signal.
