    I can not get a blood presssure reading in my left arm using the home monitor but can in my right.. I have tried to make sure I have the right size cuff and the cuff in the right position but in the left arm it always errors out. In my right arm it is usually 105/70 and sometimes a little higher. Now that I think of it seems the nurse always takes it in my right arm.. and its usually high. I have checked my home monitor with the doctor's and my home one is ok..

    My husband had no problem getting a left arm reading so it isn't the monitor.. Seems my pulse, blood pressure and body temp has been low since CFS or it might have been this way before , never paid much attention until the DD, now I check for everything trying to come up with an answer as to why I feel so darn lousy..

    I have an appointment with my doc in Aug. so will ask him then but was wondering if any of you have this and if so any explaination..

    Hugs and Thanks,
