I just went to the gyno today and when they took my blood pressure at the beginning of the session, I was startled to see that both of my arms had VASTLY different numbers. The assistant who did the reading did the first arm and it read 142/54--she asked me if I had a history of hypertension, to which I responded no. Then she took my other arm's reading and it was 113/72. She seemed satisfied by this.
Of course I go to google and there is NOTHING reassuring about having different blood pressure readings on both arms. I am terrified because I have never encountered this before. Does this mean something very bad? Do I have undiagnosed kidney disease or diabetes that I don't know about??
