High BP reading at doctor's surgery

Does anyone here experience high blood pressure readings when examined by the doctor but find that at home the readings are relatively normal?

I went to the doctor's last week to sort out an eye complaint but when she took a BP reading it was unusually high 140/125. When I took a reading at home later in the day it had dropped back to 125/85.

Needless to say I always get anxious at the doctors - usually expecting to find that there is omething else seriously wrong with me and I had prior to the visit been to the dentists to book an overdue check-up appointment (another place that makes me extremely anxious). Doctor seemed to think that it was on accountof the anxiety and didn't appear concerned but it's been preying on my mind.

My BP has been average for the last two days but I can't help feeling wound up and out of sorts with the 'black dog' barking again. Please assure me that I'm not going mad!!
