Blood pressure that is too high is known as arterial hypertension. Blood pressure that is too low is known as hypotension.
Blood Pressure
If you often feel exhausted for no reason or become woozy after standing for long periods, feel dizzy while taking a nice hot shower, experience the nausea or lightheadedness, have a physician evaluate your blood pressure.

Any level of blood pressure puts mechanical stress on the arterial walls. The higher the pressure, the more stress that is present. At branch points in blood vessels, this stress becomes a shearing force, capable of injuring the tender lining of the blood vessels, the endothelium. Elevated shearing force on the endothelium, along with other factors (nutritional, inflammatory, toxic) may contribute to the development of atherosclerosis. 

Drug Side Effects
We all know that certain cold medications, antihistamines and even cough syrups can make you drowsy. Bat you may not have known that the list of potential energy sappers features many other familiar drugs that can cause drowsiness in some people. These include some diuretics and certain blood-presure medications. If you often feel tired or run-down, ask your doctor or your pharmacist whether the medication you are taking might be the cause and what alternatives may be available.
