Variable Blood Pressures

80 year old woman, has A Fib, a recent fall (checked out by hospital), has Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.  Has had variable blood pressures of 190/118 (while laying in bed) to 114/88 upon standing or sitting (all in a matter of minutes and, the same day, being monitored by Life Link Screening)!  

Currently on Coumadin, Digitek, Prednisone (maintenance level of 9 mg/day for Adrenal Suppression), Advair (COPD).  ONLY using HCTZ as needed and with the b.p. dropping so low, HCTZ has NOT been used.

ANY ideas what could be causing this?
