Re: Increase in BP readings when under stress
Stress will increase your blood pressure (albeit temporarily), and like you say when you get the consequent higher numbers that adds even more stress. It's kinda chicken and egg. Try to reduce the stress (easy said than done!), but it will help a lot. I find Mindful Breathing very helpful with this. Watch fearful thoughts as well.
At the moment I am free from medication.
