Blood pressure : I have a few questions; how are you testing your blood pressure?At rest, not eating for 30 minutes, feet on the floor while sitting? How we measure blood pressure makes a difference. A doctor in person during a physical examination can help determine if there are any health issues related to high blood pressure changes; such as looking in the eyes. If so, then 24 hr monitoring may be needed.
