Probably. You get your nerves going and bam, it'll go up. Explain this to them, they'll probably understand since they retest anyways.

Yep! Being anxious or excited will definitely do it.

Yup! Excitement raises everyone's bp, at varying degrees.

Its also been proven that just being in a dr's office is "stressful" enough to elevate blood pressure for most people.
