I was just googling my blood pressure reading from my Endo

Customer Question

I was just googling my blood pressure reading from my Endo appointment this morning. The nurse did it four different times with two different cuff sizes.
JA: Sounds like you have some questions about your blood pressure. Luckily, the doctors and specialists are on call 24/7 to get you the answers you need to stay healthy. When was your last checkup?
Customer: I was at my Endo today.
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.
Customer: I was diagnosed with Hypthyroidism at 13. Have been on Synthroid every day since that diagnosis. Been through a lot of different health problems since then, but recently I have been bruising more easily than usual, my eye sight has changed, and my prescription changed, etc.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I'm in a normal BMI rating for my height and weight. I'm a 28 yr old female. I have had some additional family/work stress lately, but that's never really contributed to any of my health concerns.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
