Re: Anxiety and blood pressure readings

yes stress or anxiety can raise your blood pressure that amount. I also seem to have white coat syndrome and my doctor knows this about me. She has to take my BP at least 3 or 4 times to get a proper reading, it's always high with the first reading and gets lower each time, by the 3rd or 4th time she can get a more normal reading. If she only took it once my blood pressure would always come up high at the doc.
