    Pain will make you BP hike. My spikes really high at times and I am on BP meds.

    Yes going to the dr. is called "white coat syndrome" that is what I have heard it called by many. People get nervous when they go to doctors.

    If you drop by any pharmacy and ask they will check it for you free.

    dear Rob,

    You could have White Coat Syndrome - which simply means you are nervous at the dr's office so your blood pressure spikes.

    Take your blood pressure in a more relaxed setting and see what you end up with.
