Systolic average is double the diastolic

My pressure readings fluctuate in a matter of minutes with broad variances, although taken while still sitting at rest. An example may be a reading of 133/65 followed by 110/54. For the most part the diastolic readings are half the systolic. On some occasions they fall in the area of 100/49 or even lower causing me to feel faint (syncope, diagnosed with a tilt table test). I believe the rapid changes of readings are termed labile BP.

I have been concerned with the consistency of the low diastolic numbers, but my cardiologist stated he is only concerned with the systolic readings. My questions are; Does anyone else have diastolic readings on a consistent basis about
half the systolic number and/or differences in readings taken close together? My readings are taken at home on a monitor proven to be near accurate.
