Hypertension: Hypertension is diagnosed when the basal (ie lowest) BP is consistently elevated. If you're normal throughout the day, i wouldn't give it another thought. When you sleep, you're not necessarily relaxed or at basal conditions. Sleep apnea should be considered/excluded. If you take BP meds, try shifting one to bedtime so it's still working in the morning.
