    I'm not.

    But I really should be considering the orthostatic hypotension and all that.

    Why do you keep taking your blood pressure so often?
    Are you anxious about your health and worry that something is wrong?
    If it's a very serious issue for you, it could be something similar to Health Anxiety.

    I honestly cant even explain myself i have it all up in my head but i cant get it to sound right when i type it so i delete what i have written... i bought the machine tonight and already i have taken my blood pressure and pulse 6 times....

    ive taken my meds (beta blockers) i took like 2 of them then im checking my pressure again to see how low its gone. its really weird. these past few days its like im jumping from one obsession to the next......

    Well taking pills to lower it when it doesnt need to be would be bad, but watching over your blood pressure closely is not a bad idea. I guess it is better to look at it too much as opposed to not enough as it is such a risk factor for so many diseases. Maybe try to make a pact with yourself to only take it before meals each day. Then go to every other meal and then once a day?

    Could be it's just something you like doing. It can be fun to see the changes in things. I know when I first got my glasses I was obsessed with taking them off.. looking at something.. then putting them on.. looking at the same thing. It was interesting to see the difference and it was kinda fun, too.

    My blood pressure goes from high to low all the time..I see my doctor regularily and just let them monitor it,.Taking your blood pressure once or twice a day is o.k.Just don't get obsessed with it..

    I have OCD and I compulsively check my pulse when I am under stress. What you are doing sounds OCD in that you are performing a ritual to lower anxiety or feel in control.

    I used to be this way. Stop taking your blood pressure. You're only going to make the anxiety worse. Try to distract yourself with an enjoyable activity when you feel anxious enough to check your vitals.
