Then there is the 'white coat syndrome' - where it is speculated that for some people, doctors are reading too high a blood pressure, because some people's blood pressure rises in the presence of doctors.
Isn't that annoying. I have had to do that on several occasions and just as you think ahhhh sleep ....SSQUEEEEeeeeeeze .... NO SLEEP! lol And yes you are right highly annoying.. I am glad your pressure was ok! so your blood pressure is not high anymore??
Wrist blood pressure cuffs are very unreliable, you should always go for the upper arm cuff! Karen, anything over 140 over 90 is counted as high! 143 over 93 is high, not low!!!Last Friday I had angioplasty, and had a stent inserted. It was a weird experience, but didn't really hurt. I could see a map of the arteries around my heart up on a big TV screen, and see what they were doing. I had the catheter put in through my wrist, which I think makes for the quickest recovery, but many people had it done through the femoral artery, going in through the groin.
