If I am measuring my blood pressure in a lying position it is around 125/85. But if I am measuring in a sitting position my pressure rises up to 145/105 and stays there. At my daily workout (mix between walking and slow jogging) my blood pressure increases up to 166/115. Are these extrem differences normal ? I mean especially between a lying and a sitting position ?
A 24hours meassurement shows bad values during the day (140/100) and good values in the night (120/80).
