Re: My first post...need help
You don't say what sort of monitor you have -is it a reliable type?
I would have thought that if the cuff wasn't fitting properly, it simply wouldn't take a reading.
Do you measure your BP at different times of the day? Are there any lifestyle changes you can make? Your BP is obviously borderline - maybe losing a bit of weight, getting fit again, cutting out caffeine or salt may be enough in themselves.
