Re: my blood pressure is higher in a morning why
I believe it's supposed to be the lowest in the morning. Your body builds up cortisol, it's not a sudden surge from sleep to waking.
Some people can get hypertension laying down, so it would be best to see what your blood pressure is when you're resting. If it's high after you've been laying down a bit - check into that. If it's only highest in the mornings maybe your circadian rhythm/hormone levels could be off for some reason.
Apparently my brain is a little slow today (too early for me when I made the initial post) - Sleep problems (such as sleep apnea) can cause higher blood pressure in the morning.
As for the suggestion high BP in the morning because of hormones making sense - Both mine and several other people's cardiologists have said otherwise. My blood pressure is horrible in the morning, but I may possibly have low cortisol to begin with - so my body may not be getting told to wake up properly.
