I am under a doctors care and on BP meds, yet I can't keep my BP from spiking. I have anxiety problems and sometimes think that I have the BP on my mind and I make myself have high readings. Is this a possibility? I am scared to death and I worry about everything, make everthing into a serious disease. Any help out there?

It might seem like a minor problem to most, but I would like another persons input. Thanks

Any help out there?I have what they call "white coat symdrom",, anytime I have my pressure taken I know I make my bp rise by thinking about it,, I can even make my bp rise taking it at home with a machine,, most dr. / nurses think i'm strange,, don't know the cure for this as i am on bp medication and it still happens...I also know somebody else with the exact same problem
