In brief: It always does

It fluctuates in everyone; it has to to adjust to changes, such as gravity.
If it didn't, you wouldn't be able to stand after lying down.

In brief: We messed up nature

Blood pressure always swings, but the body has some pretty clever ways of regulating that sort of thing.
Blood pressure meds work by blocking 1 or more of the mechanisms the body has of raising blood pressure, so swings can be more pronounced.
