More details are needed. The 30-day monitor report would be helpful. In order to get an answer you may need to speak to your doctor

Try to reduce the intensity of your exercise. Tying going for a walk and gradually increase the speed of your walk. You can do the same with other exercise, by dialing back the intensity and gradually increasing it. It is good that you exercise. Wish you good health!
