rob Says:


my Dr checked my BP today in his office he did a 6 test cycle , it was remarkably good for once @ 120/65 BUT I noticed he checked with cuff on my right upper arm, When I test it is much higher BUT I use my left arm , So my DR re tested with cuff on Left arm,
results were much high at 160/80 range .
the question is is this OK? and why is there such a variation,Should I follow up with more investigation or just forget it ?

Hello, Rob! How are you?

Actually, that big of a difference in readings could be a sign of other cardiac problems, so you should consult a cardiologist. It is normal to have some fluctuations, but it shouldn't be that much, according to the NIH.

Are you on any medications to treat it?
