different rates for different arms?

I take my BP with my right arm and it will be about 10-15 points lower than with my left arm

Re: different rates for different arms?

My right arm is always higher. I am right handed, and someone here said the dominant arm reading is commonly higher than the other. And mine is also 10-15 points higher. Last night my BP was 181/110 so I took it again on my "weaker" arm so I'd at least feel better about it - (166/104)
