    This is very common, the same happens to me it is called white coat syndrome, nothing you can do, the harder you try to lower it, it just goes up its nerves

    Did they refuse to let you do stress test or did you refuse because of high bp, sometimes exercising brings it down especially if you do it regularly

      I was the same when my BP was first discovered 210/110. I had to take meds for four days until it came down enough (168/80) for the stress ECG. Then I got a false positive result as I always do and that leads to an angiogram. Just as well that it came down as we were going on a long haul flight the nwxt week and they had not wanted me to fly.
