When I take my blood pressure with my arm on my lap, my blood pressure is high. When I take it with my arm level with my heart it reads very good. What method is correct? I have had Drs take it when my arm was in my lap showing high pressure.
Ideally your arm should be level with your heart. For example, you sitting in a chair with your arm resting on a table at heart level.
All the best,
