Hello there, I think you have whate coat syndrome. You associate the hospital or clinic office with stress and that drives your anxiety up.
My BP is usually 110/70. At the psychiatrist yesterday it was 140/98. I was just feeling so anxious I want to jump up and run out. I do not worry about that one whack-o reading as I know what caused.

I never have had the white coat syndrone but my blood rate dose go up abit when the doc was talking about my up coming opp next week, I guess it from having to go too the ER so many times and living in a small town You seem to get to know a lot of ppl and they have joked with me saying that are going to name the new ER wing at the hospital after me lol ( they probable should as I been there soooo many times as Lyn and Kitt can tell you lol)
But I have pushed myself so hard just to get over this crud as I allways felt like I was all ways being whatched so I said the heck with it and let myself go and shaved of all my hair this past summer and when't skin headed just to see how ppl acted about me thet would look but when you look back at them they would allways turn there heads away giving me the feeling of more power over them ( not that I would recammend this this to anyone) but I loved the look I got, just putting me in so what of a spot light and watching ppl turn away and just knowing in the long run I won as I did not back down from the looks I got as they did by looking away lol
And it's nice to meet all of you
