This really sounds like you have a leaky head gasket or worse, a cracked water jacket. You may be getting coolant into your crankcase, which would "water down", so to speak, your oil and cause you to lose oil pressure. I do not know what you mean by your "oil registering fine". I presume you mean the level on the dipstick. Do you keep losing coolant? Is there any brown/white milky sludge under your oil cap or on your dipstick? If so, you most likey would have a head gasket leak.
