Doctor :   How were your previous BP readings ?
User :   Have not checked for ages. One sample: 130/91 pulse 77 (this from Omrom memory, on 14 November last year
Doctor :   ok, i would ask you to recheck the BP on three consecutive days and during the rest time ( different times of the day )
Doctor :   one or two reading would not be enough to comment on
User :   Thanks Can you help with my smelly feet query? It has faded away the last few days, but comes back every now and then. Should I see my GP?
