I have "White coat syndrome" at the doctor as well. My blood pressure is perfect at home and BAM go to any doctor and its high. I even had to wear a 24 hour blood pressure monitor to confirm this. It's very annoying to try to convince your doctor of this. I hope you can

This happens to me too.  Did they take your blood pressure more than once during the appointment?  My doc will take it at the beginning of the appointment and at least once more, after I've been there for a bit.  My BP comes down after I've been there for awhile.   Good luck.

The old doctor understood and had me bring in bp readings  but this is a new one and he is trying to change some things so we will see they only did bp once when i did it at home it was good just not wanting them to change up meds and make my bp drop to low
