Re: Why would blood pressure in my right arm always be higher than the left?
1) in the office, the med. tech takes the first reading in left arm, then my dr takes one in each arm thru the visit
2 he uses the traditional syphgmomonometer ,the one with the vertical guage, i use both, a traditional one, and a digital one
3) yes.. all the proper positions are used
4)i am worried about the diastolic, although i am still worried about the systolic
5)when my b/p is low, which is right after i take my meds, i do get very dizzy and nauseous, when it is high, i get heaviness in my chest, headache, and that's when i usually feel weird.;right in the middle of my chest
6)i have no abnormalities in either arm, but i am left handed.
i just find it odd , especially that it is such a big difference in the readings.
