Do You Have White Coat Hypertension?
Have you ever felt nervous sitting in the waiting room of your doctor’s clinic? Does your mouth get dry or do you start to perspire or shake at the thought of seeing your doctor? You are there for your yearly physical examination and it’s taken quite a while to get an appointment.
When your name is called and you are taken into the examination room by the nurse or receptionist, do you sit down and wait for the doctor to enter the room? When you are sitting there, are you thinking to yourself, what will the doctor do to me, what will the doctor discover, and will it be bad news?
Now, you may not realize it, but your heart rate and blood pressure have just increased despite the fact that no physical exertion has occurred.
