I get this from two different things. When I am flowering my plants the lower leaves on the plants will appear to be pointing down but are actually facing themselves outward from the side of the plant due to the mylar. There are too many leaves above for overhead light to hit these lower outer leaves so they reach for the light being reflected from the sides.
The other time this happens is when I use too little light. For example this is a male that showed itself and I continued flowering it under two small CFL's for a couple weeks to try and collect pollen. The lower leaves didn't get enough/any light and just started dropping/dying. (I did still get viable pollen this way though)

Regardless I would say it is a light issue. If it was an overwatering/underwatering issue I would expect to see curling to the leaves and not just droop. If you look at the last pic you posted in your post you can see that the leaves above the dropping leaves are all being hit by good light.

how can this be fixed

Allow that soil to dry out..bone dry my friend...how often do you water/feed...My 3-5 gallon pots dont get water/feed but maybe 1 time a week...we have to allow the soil to become dry between water/feedings so O2 gets to the roots...if ya water every other day or third...leafs will look like that...Hope this helps

take care and be safe :bolt::bong:

Now, I water every other day too, I am using 5gal and 10gal pots. Yes, my plants are bone dry when it comes time to water and yes, the plants are a bit large! Not everyone is overwatering if watering every other day, situations differ. It's also good to check by lifting the pot and checking weight when both dry AND wet to know the differences and better gauge when water is needed
