White coat HTN: what you are saying might very well be true but you could still be at risk of high BP all the time anyway. Ask your doctor about 24 hours BP monitoring device that can measure BP accurately for 24 hours( awake and sleeping) and then observe the readings. Further treatment plan will depend on the result that you can personally discuss with a physician. Good luck!
