High blood pressure comes without any symptom, it sneaks up and increases the risk of getting a heart attack. It is known to be a silent killer, and it can come out of nowhere, says Shermane Winters-Wofford, who is a survivor.
Shermane believed that she was in perfect health, up until she had a stroke. It is important to mention that she was at risk for a long time because of her family history of heart disease and high blood pressure.
