Our expert says:
Do not worry yourself about a single high blood pressure reading - if it is consistently higher for a few days in a row, and you don't have any obvious causative factors like stress, pain, or emotional upsets, then you can begin thinking about seeing a doctor for a change in the dosage of your medication. One can get an increase in BP temporarily due to exercise,stress or pain or emotional upsets, the BP usually returns to normal in a few hours. One must also be sure that the machine that you measure with is working correctly.
