What could cause low bp sometimes?

My blood pressure this morning is 103 over 62 what does that mean? I'm 63 years old, male, 240 lbs, 35 inch waist, 6'3", big bone frame. I feel great with no side effects. No headaches, no weakness, no dizzies, heart not pounding, no vision problems except a few threads in both eyes, no chest pains, etc Most of time blood pressure is around 115 to 125 over 75 to 80, but why does it drop around 100 over 60 sometimes.

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I would explain that these seem to be just normal blood pressure flunctuations during the day. You should know that our blood pressure usually depends of the physical and emotional activity, the time of the day, the food we eat, etc.

So there are different factors contributing on it.

It may be low after urinating and it may be higher after drinking water.

Usually during the night and in the morning, when lying down, it is lower, because of the lack of physical activity.

But as long as you have no symptoms, everything is OK. There is nothing to worry about.

Hope to have been of help!
