    Blood pressure usually starts to rise a few hours before a person wakes up. Are you experiencing any breathing difficulties and tightness in the chest when the BP increases at night? Blood pressure increase at night or nocturnal hypertension can also be caused by thyroid and kidney problems and diabetes. If you go online and check, you will find more reasons for nocturnal hypertension. It is better to consult a GP.
