I am suffering from anxiety related hypertension, I am also uses bp tab. I am taking bp by automated bp monitor at home, each time I took 3 readings first reading always high than others due to anxiety and excitement. The later readings are normal and similar. Which reading should be considered? Pls suggest.
1 reading 135/86
2 reading 124/74
3 reading 120/72.
Go with manual bp monitor. This will give u accurate result. Monitor ur bp weekly better for anxiety issue.
