So I have been monitoring my bp at home for the past few years. I am currently on Ramipril. I have had no problems with taking my blood pressure using an automatic monitor. However the past week I cant get any readings from my left arm! I can feel a pulse when the machine works, but it does feel weaker than the right arm. The machine can get a readings in my right arm with no problems, but it just cannot get a reading in my left arm. I would normally chalk it up to user error, but this is something I am well practised in and the fact it works first time on my right arm leaves me to think the machine isnt faulty!
Anyone else with any experience of this happening? Any advice as to what I should do?
