Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Dear madam,
I understand your concern. It is unusal for BP to differ by so much in both the arms. The probable causes can be either a vascular block or a cardiovascular cause. I suggest you meet your general physician or a cardiologist who will be able to help you out. I suggest you also get an ECG done. Hope this has helped you.
