High blood pressure: The doctors white coat may have caused your increase in blood pressure. However, have your doctor check your urine, your eye grounds and get an ultra sound of your kidneys to rule out possible cause. If you are taking medications or otc products inform your doctor.

See your doctor for follow up. Sleep Breathing Disorders are related to multiple medical problems such as cardiovascular events, high blood pressure, diabetes, cognitive decline & urinary issues including sexual dysfunction. A home or lab sleep test is needed & STOP-BANG questionnaire. A Sleep MD will diagnose. Treatment is CPAP, surgery or a dentist may make an Oral Appliance.
