Thanks for posting your query.
I would need to have some more information in order to help you better.
What was your blood pressure level at 6:00 AM?
What is your age and do you have any other symptoms apart from low blood pressure?
Low blood pressure may be due to various reasons. It may be due to heart disease, blood loss, septicemia (spread of infection in body), may be a normal variant and a diurnal variations.
There is diurnal variation (during whole day) in blood pressure which means that the blood pressure has a daily pattern. Blood pressure is normally lower at night while you're sleeping. Your blood pressure starts to rise a few hours before you wake up. Your blood pressure continues to rise during the day, usually peaking in the middle of the afternoon. Then in the late afternoon and evening, your blood pressure begins dropping again.
Few patients have low blood pressure such as systolic blood pressure at level of 90 mm Hg and these patients are asymptomatic.
If you are passing urine normally, then your blood pressure should be considered normal because low blood pressure due to any reason, leads to a decrease in the urine output.
