blood pressure

whenever i go to the doctor for my blood pressure to be checked, it comes out to be high.

I have had loads of tests and a 12hr bp test which shows nothing wrong. so it must just be the stress of being around doctors.

I have a medical coming up soon, so does anyone have any advice on how to keep my bp normal?

    White coat syndrome is perfectly normal. Some people just find the docs a stressful place. Not much you can do about it if it just happens in the docs room, just try to do a little meditation prior to having it done.

    I suffer from this too.

    Tried to get life insurance and had to go to the docs for my BP, came out 162/92, then 2nd attempt 160/94

    So went away and came back in 2 weeks

    Reading was 184/98!!

    Doc gave me a monitor for a week and no reading was high, average was 131/85.
