    Without knowing any specific details it is a bit hard to tell. Your doctor may have requested 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring to get a better understanding of your blood pressure. This can be helpful to diagnose high (or low) blood pressure, especially if you tent to have white coat syndrome.
