Today at the family planning clinic when the nurse routinely took my blood pressure , she noticed it was high, she retook the reading several times and it came up between 160-174 over 95-99 every time. She tried several things but it didnt seem to bring it down. She did ask me to go back as she said she thought it was a one off but wanted to be sure. How likely is it that high blood pressure like this was just a one off ??
She used both the digital and then the manual to double check and the readings were still just as high
I dont drink tea , coffee or fizzy pop and hadnt done anything exercise wise that day , plus beforehand id sat in the waiting room for 30 mins so i cant see any of that affecting it . she just seemed to be really sure it was a one off.
