Patient : Just recently moved into a new home that has a water softener. I currently take medicine for high blood pressure. Any effects I should expect with my BP, and I have noticed puffiness in my hands and eyes (bloating feeling). It has been about 4 weeks in the new home. I'm thinking of testing by buying gallon jugs of filtered water from the grocery store to see if that makes a difference. Your thoughts would be helpful.
