BP Higher in Non-Dominant arm?
With a few threads talking about differences in arms and BP higher in the dominant arm, I realized that my BP is higher in my non-dominanat arm. I did some Googling and it appears in the med literature that BP is generally higher in the dominant arm. I am left handed but my BP is always higher in my right arm. In some cases if I measure my right arm and then immediately do my left arm there is a difference greater than 10 points. I'm only 23 so I cannot imagine I have any blockages. Could this help identify a cause perhaps?
I sleep a lot on my right side and I do some times wake up with a "dead arm" from sleeping on it, could I have some sort of nerve damage?
