You may be suffering from what is known as Labile Hypertension, where there are spikes of high BP now and then especially during AM hours(AM hypertension)with normal readings in between. It is just that you have to have a good cover of antihypertensives round the clock, lead a stress free life and be with restricted salt diet.

Bye for now and good health to you
