I went to my GP to have a smear test and the practice nurse said as I'd not had my bp checked for 4 years that she would do it. Anyway, she couldn't get a reading from her bp monitor (it kept saying "error") so she wasn't sure if it was me or the machine. So she put me down on a waiting list for a monitor to take home, which I picked up yesterday. I am supposed to take my bp twice a day for a week. Well, I've started and the readings are SO erratic that I'm beginning to worry!!

Here they are:

117/90
117/77
97/67
99/58
109/60

What the heck is going on? Should I be worried??
Thanks

Those readings are all perfect

Sorry, should say it's normal for your blood pressure to be different each time you read it.

not erratic at all, bp varies over the course of a day. Those readings are fine - on the low side not high at all.
