Hi,I have had patients with this problem and I will either place the B/P cuff on their forearm or ankle to get a reading and the patients say it is less painfull.

Peanut1250,
Thank you for your reply! I was in the hospital the other day. I'm in Arizona visiting my kids and have never had to go to a hospital before . They treated me like I was over reacting my blood pressurewas 174/23 for 5 hour and puals was 117 . I was in so much pain and when asked to move it they would not. I ended up leaving and going somewhere else! Now I know its now just me.. thank you so much have a blessed day!!
