Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us.

This is referred to as "white coat syndrome". It happens to me. You have a normal blood pressure, but once you are in a doctor's office or healthcare setting, your blood pressure goes up.

Ask to have your blood pressure taken after treatment has been completed. You might see it is within the normal range.
