I noticed my pulse in the morning being weaker and higher than usual (~80-90), it falls back to ~70 in the evening, bloodpr looks okay, possibl causes?

This would cause your brain to sag a little when you stand up. Painful but probably not dangerous. It can be tested for. This isn't a diagnosis, just an educated guess. ...Read more
