  • I have white coat syndrome. My blood pressure is so high when I am getting my vitals done. I can feel it going up. I tell them I would prefer they do it after the doctor is done seeing me, but they never listen.

  • I have never been "terrified" but I am not happy with going to my yearly checkup. I think I am even less happy about going to the Dentist though.

  • I've had too many hospitalizations and ER visits and I have some PTSD about going to the dr, ER, or hospital.

  • I've never liked the doctor. I much rather prefer going to the dentist. I'd actually prefer to pull all of my teeth out than go to a doctor. Them taking my blood pressure is what scares me the most. I've had issues with it since getting pregnant two years ago. That little machine is my worst enemy!

  • I've been told I may have the white coat thing too. The doctors always tell me "it's too high to be nerves!" Whatever!!!
