Feeling a bit deflated. Was at doctors today to review my blood pressure meds. I was sooo optimistic that they would be reduced - I have lost a stone, become more active, am in less pain than I was 2 months ago. BUT, my blood pressure has shot up! I know some peoples bp can be artificially raised (white coat syndrome) when they go to drs, but that has never affected me and I have taken it at home this lunchtime and afternoon and its still raised. The doctor was impressed with my weight loss and looked a little perplexed at my readings. So now I have to be monitored monthly by the practice nurse. Not a happy bunny!
