Thank you for your reply. I do not suffer from hypertension. I had Lyme disease about a year ago and took three weeks of doxycycline and don't believe I've had any symptoms since then.

The medications I am currently taking are 400 mg of progesterone each day and I have estrogen and testosterone pellets inserted in my hip. These are bio identical hormones and I've been using them for 14 months. I am on no other medication besides supplements and suffer from no other diseases.

Thank you, XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
