Years ago, it was reverse for me, when the nurse took my blood pressure, it would be very high, but when the doctor would take it about 15 minutes later, it would be normal, or a little below normal. After a year of this happening, the doctor finally asked me what was with this blood pressure issue, of course, most of you have already figured this out, she was a real cutie!

go shopping with your wife and take it at the drug store in the mall. mine is way high then i think the shopping thing has something to do with it though, three malls and it kept getting higher.did ya know malls are unhealthy.

Perhaps you have the "white Coat" syndrome when you see the Doc coming. And then, I always need the large cuff for accurate reading, not the small one. Fun, isn't it?

If the nurse is doing it right, by that I mean resting your forearm on something while taking the BP, then she has the right numbers. Usually the doc doesn't do as good a job and the numbers are off.
