Fear Of Having My bp Taken

by lyn
(england north lincs.)

i am a 53yr old female and lead a quite normal life with the children now left home but since my first child i was left with a fear of having my bp taken which when anxcious in always high but when calmed down it goes to a more normal state.

My doctors still wont believe me when i say i have this phobia and tend to discount any advice other than getting it checked out which makes matters worse.

i am at a loss as to what to do now that wont cost a fortune in expensive treatments and has proved to be effective.

can anyone please advise or is there anyone suffering the same problems as myself, who could give good advice.
