Is this whitecoat hypertension maybe?
The other day I was sick and had to go to doctor to get thyroid, iron tested. Nurse said my bloodpressure was 190/110. Then they checked it after resting a bit and it dropped to 160/90 or so. Doc gives me a script for Amylodipine in which I am scared to take.
I get home checked it with my sunmark omron pump up digital and it was 140/90. After resting about 10 mins in goes down to the 120s/80s range.
That morning I had two cups of coffee, bowl of cereal and 1000mcgs of vitamin C.
Could anxiety cause my BP to rise so much? Or was it the vitamin C?
