Blood pressure are affected by various factors. Few physical factors that affect the blood pressure are level with the heart, presence of gravity.
On sitting position, since the upper arm is in level with your heart, upper arm is widely used for blood pressure recording.
Another reason is that since blood pressure can be different, when measured in the upper or lower limb, for standardisation, uniformity and to prevent the biasis, upper limb is used for measuring blood pressure...
I am female, 57 years old, 5 6 and 220 lbs. taking medicine for high blood pressure and also for cholesterol. My upper right inside arm seems larger than the left arm and when i press on it - it does not hurt - but it feels more mushy than the left.
Black Male 51 years old, 6 1 303 Lbs Recently started getting muscle spasms (?) in his arms. Today, he started feeling it in his upper left side of his chest. I could actually feel it through his shirt - as if he was flexing his pecs .... could this be a pinched nerve? He indicated that it is not a pain however it is concerning. He has high blood pressure and diabetes.
why is my blood pressure reading higher in the doctor s office than at home? I use the arm cuff and also a wrist monitor. I get 159/74/65 and lower. The nurse and doctor s equipment show over 200/90/70. They want to put me on medication. I don t want to take pills. I exercise and eat using the DASH diet recommendations. I am a concerned senior over age 70.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

Thanking you in anticipation Your's faithfully SHIRISH ANDHARI
