I do the same thing. I have a blood pressure cuff and will take it a minimum it 4 times a day. It typically goes up in the evening (because I anticipate this and get anxiety). It's a vicious cycle that makes me crazed. If I stay preoccupied then I'm not symptomatic so it's a crazy but predictable cycle for me. My problem isn't necessarily the need to use the machine but mire the obsession with having a heart attack d he to blood pressure issues.
