It seems very possible that his BP cuff is wrong and he may have more high BP patients than average. I like how you # the doctors--not a bad idea.


I know someone who's BP is high at night only. it is not common but certainly not unheard of. she had a mini stroke probably because it took them so long to figure it out.

Oh, gods, my dear - how infuriating! I can't stand it when docs think they know it all, especially when they clearly do NOT.

I'll be praying very hard for you to NOT receive a large sum of seizure-mail now or anytime in the future. :(

I mean, REALLY; if it's not one thing it's another - but do they ever have a real suggestion?

Personally, I've always thought my blood pressure must shoot right up everytime they start to inflate that damn cuff; I have large arms, so maybe that has something to do with it, but I always find the 'full' point on the painfull side! If it hurts/you anticipate it hurting, wouldn't that send your blood pressure up a bit?!


I am so sorry, how very annoying! Doctors, can't live with them, can't live without them! I currently have 4, so I know a little bit how you feel. I too hope the seizures get lost in the mail for good.
