It's not good to compulsively check over and over...will cause unseeded stress. Your levels aren't at any extreme danger level. Try not to take anymore today and relax.

Machines or tests of any sort, unless under medical supervision, should be avoided. We are not doctors so have no idea how to interpret readings. The more we test the more we worry. Leave any testing to the professionals. It is obvious that the more you get stressed out the higher your BP will be. There is still the 'white coat syndrome' which doctors allow for. In the doctors surgery or in hospital our BP goes up because of anxiety. Calm down and things will return to normal.
