Jan, my mom suffers from white coat syndrome and the hassle they give her at the doctors office about her blood pressure makes it 10 times worse. She's gone through the exact same thing as you with them wanting her to take a bp pill that she doesn't need.
She monitors and logs at home and shows her doc the logs but all they want to talk about is her bp in the office.
Actually, one of my bosses has a "health coach" for high blood pressure through our insurance. He started turning the tables on the nurse he talks to by asking her questions.... so where are you located? So you've probably never tried the good food we have here, have you? Well, you have to know that the only exercise I'm going to get is walking to the deer stand at my hunting camp.
Doo doo is right. :)
