    is there a health condition called 'clinic' or 'hospital' hypertension?

    This question may sound odd but the father of a friend of mine went for a checkup.The nurse took his blood pressure and declared it very high.When the doctor saw the patient and took the pressure again he got a high reading too.They knew based on the reading that he was headed for a stroke so they gave him some tablet to lower it.When the reading was lower they allowed him to go home. he walked home and collapsed when he got home. His daughter, a nurse, found out what was done and was upset. When she took his pressure it was very low. Does her father have anxiety about visiting a doctor?

    ) when one is not able to keep urine in his bladder for more than 3 hours.
    2) what makes one not able to leave the urinal it is his urine does not stop at once.
    3) what makes one not able to keep urine for 4 hours.

    Aoiffe379, the answer to your question is yes. This health 'condition' is also known as "white-coat hypertension." Some folks are worried about what their physicians might find--even when they're in good health. And others are uncomfortable being touched by strangers. That anxiety or discomfort can translate into temporarily elevated blood pressure.

    I suggest that your friend's father purchase an el cheapo battery-powered blood pressure meter, and measure his own BP every month. It may help him to avoid future episodes of over-medication.

    If his BP is too high, he'll know about it right away. Then he can begin to take the necessary steps to bring it under control, and to minimize the long-term risks of high BP.

      I had seen this in my son, and in my father. Most of the time they where afraid they would get a shot.
