I have been tested and found with blood pressure of 145/90. I have been prescribed tablets for this. I am wondering if exercise will help lower this.

I was at work putting trays of meat on a shelf when all of the sudden I got dizzy. My blood pressure was 162/99 and I had to go to the doctor.

I went to a free health screening and they said I have high blood pressure.
