OP: "I went to a doctor for him to look at a spot on my head that didn't look to good."
In my experience this is frequently or always a way of saying "I fear cancer".
It has been any and every time I have heard it said. You may substitute "sore", "lump", "pain" etc for "spot". If I am wrong, then ignore my post.
It means that we cannot deal with this only or mainly as a BP problem, because the BP may be consequent to terror; focusing on, or treating the BP without that recognition is doomed to failure.
I was attempting to answer the OP question implied:
"my bp was 220/i dont know why. i was so concerned that im not worried about that thing on my head any longer."
"what i really want to know is why do you think my bp came up so high after all the time... "
This issue is a major failing of the specialist system - you are a heart guy and see things from that vantage point, all fine perhaps, for the heart/BP itself. A Healer looks at the terrified person and realizes that the heart and associated BP is secondary, still recognizing that it may be immediately critical.
"Going to see a doctor for many people is just another form of???
HINT: It start’s with ST and you can figure the RESSt!"
Is your question, and I recognize it as a question, but it includes the "just", which as I am trying to say IS a STATEMENT of importance relevant to the OP's situation. I feel that if my assessment of the OP statement as explained is correct, then this is far more than "just" (another) stress, rather it is the descent into terror, certainly relevant to sudden high BP.
Yes the high BP should be attended to, first by determining if it is/was more than transient, and then by taking appropriate action if necessary. I see no indication that further measurements were taken, though I hope so, but my hopes are frequently not realized when they ought to be.
I find your paragraph re "white coat hypertension" to be wonderfully clear and informative, and would recommend it to all and sundry. The parts about stress and trauma are excellent and another way of saying what I am saying. The difference is that I consider the "just another form of" statement or implication to be possibly contributing greatly to the patient's stress and trauma.
I recognize and appreciate your "intent", and it is appropriate among "mechanics" to discuss technical things this way, but am trying to point out that the patient's fear can easily obscure and override any intent of a practitioner, with even the best of intent and effort.
Try as I might, I cannot figure out the meaning of, or the question you are asking in your ending paragraph.
If a new thread seems required, start it or tell me what you think it should be.
