Thanks for the responses guys....I'm gonna try to get my bp checked again in a few days to see if maybe it was just some fluke incident.

Now this is making me stress out more about my other health anxiety issues! Wondering if this is linked to any of the others... (i.e cancer, hiv, etc...)  :fragend005:

I wouldn't try to worry about it too much. If you are worried about it, I  would get it checked every so often. I tried to use those machines at a pharmacy and the numbers change so much so quickly. My doctor told me that I could just go to his office and asked to get my blood pressue read. It's more accurate and can be reassuring that there is nothing to worry about.

You can also get an accurate reading at your local fire station. They do it for free.
