I went to the doctor for a physical 2 weeks ago & they claimed I had high blood pressure. Each time I went it was around 142-147 over 96-97. So he stick me on this medicine. I quit taking the medicine because I wasn't going to have enough to last until my next appt. Anyway...I went to day to the hospital & had my pressure taken and it was only 129/96. The nurse asked if they had used the correct arm cuff to take the pressure. I told her that they had used a smaller cuff than she had. So she tell me that they are using the wrong one and that can cause higher numbers. So should I go back on the medicine or wait until the appt and then see what he says? According to the hospital's nurse, if I take the medicine I'm thinning my blood and that can also cause problems.
