I tried to post this before but don't see it so I am trying again. I am an 83 year old woman feeling great and energetic but recently been told I have hypertension because a 24 hr monitor averaged 147, ranging from 107 to 195. My BP was always low to average before. Now a Omron wrist cuff (all cuffs make me anxious) shows numbers all over the place, normal before lunch but very high (180's) before bed. I also have a lifelong history of vasovagal events related to heat.
