As long as you are sure that your readings at home are accurate, then Tstarr-CU is right, you just have "white-coat syndrome." You could also have the doctor take your blood pressure at the end of the appointment, for some people the white-coat syndrome goes away by the end. If your doctor says not to worry, then try not to. He's probably right!

Cannot believe my ticker now reads my final healthy goal weight. Inching towards it with God's help.

TSTARR-CU - What you have, I believe, is " white-coat syndrome ".
My Mom had that, too ! Her blood pressure would go up, after waiting
in the Dr.'s waiting room, for a while...
