Another thing that happens with me is that because I'm overweight and I have big upper arms, if they don't use a large sized cuff it is incredibly painful and uncomfortable. I'll usually suggest using a larger sized cuff if I see them pull out the normal one because I know the pain of having it done shoots it up. Sadly, taking it at home the last two days at the same time in the morning, it has been hovering around 140/90. And today I got a pretty bad BH just while sitting in bed and I think it shot up. Got all fuzzy headed an nauseous. UGH! The stress of it all certainly is no help!
