High & Low Blood Pressure board

Hi Junior,

Boy can I relate. Mine goes up even when I see the cuff coming. I just took mine at home and it was really high. I'm on Effexor for anxiety and that's supposed to raise your BP also. So I'm weaning off of that and just called the doc to maybe get on a blood pressure med. Have you ever been on any meds? It's probably just anxiety if you're anything like me.
