Question No blood pressure in left arm?

I went to the doctor and it took two nurses and 7 tries to get a reading in my left arm. This had never happened before. I was going in for chest pains, and the doctor suggested I use Vioxx for muscle pain in my chest. I went back a week later and it took 2 tries and it was a very faint reading. I have been having it checked everyday and if you get a reading in the left arm it is so faint you can't hear it. I was just wondering what this is, and how can I help the problem?

Re: No blood pressure in left arm?

What are your readings when they finally get the BP taken? Are you currently on BP medication, if so is it a beta blocker that lowers your heart rate?
