Join Similar Worlds today 禄 nervous for doctor appointment

I have a physical soon, and I am getting really nervous. For one, I have White coat syndrome, in which my blood pressure goes high because Im so nervous. Even home monitors. Its just the act of seeing "what is ittt?" That gets me anxious. Then I was supposed to lose a bit of weight, but only lost like 5 pounds. Im just really anxious, that it will be a negative aura now, at this appointment. That I let the doc down somehow. How to ease worry around this??馃槦
I鈥檓 afraid as well but I think 5 pounds will show in your blood work. It鈥檚 not easy losing weight. I鈥檝e struggled soo badly these past months but I鈥檓 hoping to change that.
put the nerves aside and go to the doctor. I get that feeling when I have to see my GYN. while not friends with I know his wife from the Doctors Wives Association

Get tested. It could just be anxiety, but the anxiety could come at seem consistently high numbers, and that could be a much more serious problem.

Oh no, sorry to read that, how much were you supposed to lose?

@Coralmist Well 5lbs is somethgin. I don't think the Dr will be too upset with you.

The doc is there to serve YOU. It's great that you lost that weight and you should be commended for it.

@uncalled4 I was supposed to lose more near 20, and only did 5. But you're right, and I didn't gain weight at least. I was also supposed to take A BP med, but my blood pressure is normal..she prescribed it because its high in the office (nervous), and I told her only occasionally am I off the chart nervous like that, so she prescribed it..but I know its normal regularly..i was afraid it would go low. Now im nervousIll be chastised馃槦

@Coralmist Ultimately, do what you want. There's no crime in keeping an eye on your BP with a cuff. You can always discontinue it if it gets too low.
