What are the causes of blood pressure to fluctuate many times during the day from "high" to relatively "normal"?

In brief: Not unusual

The blood pressure even when normal varies from minute to minute even.
It is not uncommon for a patient in the dr.'s office to have a high blood pressure when that patient first comes in and for it to be lower later. Stress and activity will effect it. It is normal for the blood pressure to go up during and right after exertion. Some patients have more labile BP than others.

In brief: Varies

Your blood pressure will normally very over the course of the day.
This depends on many factors such as fatigue , exercise , dietary intake including salt , smoking for people who do smoke. Patients who have uncontrolled blood pressure variation can be worse.
