Be checked : If you are concerned, I would not hesitate to be checked. Checking your blood pressure I each arm yourself or at your doctors office can tell if the difference you feel is real. If it is, there are several potential causes including unilateral thoracic outlet syndrome. A good exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause.
