I have a diagnosis of Kallmann's Syndrome and relatively recently my blood pressure has gone up steadily. I wanted to see if there was information and support through this board for Kallmann's patients handling high blood pressure.
After being on BP meds for a year I developed Plantar fasciitis in one foot and then 6 mos later metatarsal capsulitis in my other foot. I am on Losartin and Amlodipine Besylate. Could these conditions be related to my meds?
