1. Done without any specific reason.
2. No, used to some 5-6 years ago but not that much.
3. My father has high BP & my mother has RBBB. But my mother has gone through multiple surgeries for some other reason.
4. Aten 25 once a week for last couple of months. But started BP medicine since 2019. At home, BP is normal but when I go to doctor it increases.

My local physician said ECG is fine but asked for a 24 hr BP check.

Brief Answer:
Hello again

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the information. Yes, your physician is right as there are no alarming variations in the ecg. However it’s important to follow a healthy lifestyle routine.

Increase in blood pressure while your visit to hospital is a normal phenomenon for some individual but yes you need to get it monitored at home as well.
