Every since I was in my 20’s when I go to the doctor my BP has always spiked. I purchased an omiron home wrist reader over this issue. I take it a few times a week at night and my readings are usually 120/60 -130/70.
Today I went to donate blood and was actually turned away. I had a horrible day at work and could feel how agitated I was. The drive home was a drive from hell and when the nurse took my readings it was 160/102… 155/104. I live right down the street from the blood drive so I got home and put my home cuff on… thinking this would show if the thing is calibrated. It showed 163/102 and 161/100… SO it appears to be reading accurately.
My questions are is this normal ? When I was younger my primary doctor used to use a larger cuff because he said using a normal one on someone muscular can raise the results. These have all been normal sized cuffs.
I am on TRT and hoping this has nothing to do with it… but honestly for the last few months every single night i check it I am perfect.
