High BP, tremor in right arm. What do you think is the cause of high BP?

Hi , My wife has high blood pressure that we need to "accurately monitor as she has tremors in her right arm" I believe (husband) that these tremors reveal themselves at the high diastolic times + 100-160 although I am having a hard time believing the readings from life source blood pressure device. What would you recommend as a most accurate device as "I believe that the high blood pressures are the cause of her tremors in her right arm" Regards, John Schuetz

Dear Sir
thanks for writing to
it is unlikely to have tremors in only right hand due to high blood pressure. What is the blood pressure in left arm at that time? it is possible that instruments measure incorrect BP in right hand because of tremors. you can check it in left arm or you can get it compared to a manual manometer at doctor's clinic. anyhow a pressure of 160/100 needs to be treated. please see your doctor.
