My doctor thinks I've got high blood pressure and unless I change my awful awful ways may be in for an early exit from existence. Or a stroke/paralysis/wheelchair. Right cheery bastard he is.
 
I own a blood pressure monitor, but I don't trust it. Can anyone tell me why:
 
1. Two consecutive readings within 30 seconds of each other can vary enormously
2. How you can measure BP through the arm. Surely the amount of muscle/fat will impact the squeezing of arteries?
 
I'm quite a large chap 6"1 tall and too wide to fit on a standard SouthEastern railways seat (who isn't?). Once they used a 'big' cuff on the machine which gave a totally normal reading. The normal cuff read high.
 
I probably do have hypertension, but there doesn't seem to be a satisfactory way of measuring it.
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
