I'm a 51 yr old male , general good health , somewhat of a work a holic , recently my doc asked me to keep and eye on my BP at home because I got an above average reading at his office ,
I do work a very Stressful job and eat like a horse and also I do smoke , not a lot but it's there .
I do get readings all over the place up & down
4:00am at kitchen table before coffee ...133/84
12:00 noon at work stress ...145/90
5:00pm Saturday mowing lawn ...133/87
9:00pm relaxed..... 128/82
The above are just a few examples , I always note exactly what I'm doing when I take readings , my BP jumps up and down and is constantly all over the place all day at different times ,
I do own a top of the line BP machine .
I haven't seen a BP reading of 120/80 or below in myself since I was in my 20's .
My doc says he can't say I have high BP for sure because the readings are so erratic and is very hesitant to give me meds . Nor do I want meds , Is there anyway I can stabilize this BP . Or is this normal .... Open to suggestions
