Dear all, I had my AOSB medical yesterday, and have been deferred until I can show that my BP is not in the hypertension range. At the medical, I was pretty stressed out, and it was up at 150/85 (down from 178/78 on the Monday morning!). Usually when I measure it at home (keep track for fitness purposes, with a recommended calibrated magic machine) it's around 116-125/65. I need to get a GP or nurse to confirm that three readings are under 140/90. The problem I have is that I know it gets elevated at doctors surgeries anyway, and as I want to pass this medical, I'll be even more 'on edge', which will just make things worse. Any ideas on how to deal with this? Have a 20min nurse appointment booked for Monday to try and get the magic three 'low' readings. Thanks in advance, Snoreador.
