Loss of energy and dizziness from exercise.

Q: I’ve recently started working out (one of the more physical programs) and the other day I began to experience signs of energy loss, some diziness, physical weakness, and fatigue. I’ve been feeling better since I quit the routine, but I wanted to ask if my BP meds or my BP itself (which had been in control)could be “interfering” with my workout. The spirit is willing but the flesh got weak.

A: Sounds like you did too much too soon. Rather than stopping working out, you should choose a less vigorous program and gradually build up your strength and endurance. Certain blood pressure medicines can keep the heart from to beating fast enough to keep up with the demands of exercise. You should discuss your medicines and exercise goals with your doctor.
