My consultant told me to stop taking blood pressure tablets at my recent appointment - even though my blood pressure was high (138/88). I raised my concerns but he said not to worry they never went by blood pressure readings in the clinic.
Unsurprisingly I saw a sudden blood pressure rise by Tuesday last week (160/98). So I hardly slept early part of last week.
After we got hold of the consultant on Thursday he apologised and told me to start taking the tablets again!
Fun and games...
