This is weird?

I tried out my new blood pressure monitor. It will take 3 readings in 3 minutes and then average them out. It gives me a reading of 126/83 with a heartbeat of 78 bpm.

But at the doc today it was 153/90.

My husband tried it and his BP was his usual.

I guess I suffer from white coat syndrome. Same thing happened 2 years ago - high BP at the doctors. Wore a 24 hour monitor and it showed a normal pressure.

At least I can monitor it daily now. I hope this monitor is correct. What a pleasant surprise. At least the health scare got me sober!
