People whose systolic blood pressure -- the upper number in their reading -- is different in their left and right arms may be suffering from a vascular disease that could increase their risk of death, British researchers report.

The arteries under the collarbone supply blood to the arms, legs and brain. Blockage can lead to stroke and other problems, the researchers noted, and measuring blood pressure in both arms should be routine.

I go for a physical on the 24th and one of the things they'll be looking at is my BP for sure. It's been slowly on the rise.

Yes you are still at risk for heart stroke and heart problems. If your blood pressure level is high get help from your doctor to discuss this and get it treated if needed.
