Hello, sorry to hear about your situation. I have the same problem with my blood pressure. I am twenty-four and when I go to the doctor my blood pressure always goes up even if I seem calm. I am now on two medicines because of it, which is reasonable because I know my weight contributes. I have been in the ER and had my blood pressure checked after I have time to relax and it will be 120/64 yet 140/88 at my doctor when I first go in. I have came to the conclusion with mine; the increase in heart rate and panic are what raises my blood pressure. I have decided I want a reliable at home wrist monitor so I can track my numbers for my doctor. I am sure weight loss and consistent exercise need to come first before doctors will feel comfortable in removing the medications but sometimes you have to do the monitoring in your daily life and keep a log for your doctor. Good luck with getting off your medications, I know it is really hard living on medications especially being this young.

Hi! What you have is so common, that they have a name for it - White Coat Hypertension. It is when your blood pressure goes up only at the doctor's office. You can look it up for more details.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I am 22 years old and been on 2 high blood pressure medicine for almost 2 years. My blood pressure is only high when I am at my family doctor. When I check it while I am out shopping it's normal. Back in November, I got on the exercise bike in my parents' living room. I rode 3 miles in less than 30 minutes about an hour after I finished 2 hours of Zumba with friends. Right after I finished the 3 miles, I had mom check my blood pressure because the bike said my heart rate was 160 or higher. I just wanted to know if I needed to stop. My blood pressure was normal and my heart rate was 115. I am I the only one that has high blood pressure only at the doctor? My family doctor wants my blood pressure to go down before trying to put me on a medicine for fibromyalgia since every other medicine doesn't seem to help with the burning/tingling/pricking pain. I just want the pain to stop.
