It may be "white coat hypertension". People tend to have bit elevated blood pressure in front of the doctors. Nevertheless, use a home machine or ask your doctor to put you on a pressure monitor for few days.

Well, it could 'white coat' hypertension, however, even that deserves careful evaluation.  What does your doctor say?  It may be time to take evaluation to the next level to make sure all is well.
