It is probably a rebound effect

you are likely going lower in the middle of the night on workout days then you get a higher rebound in the AM.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
