Anyone had their kidney function/blood pressure affected.....

....by either chemo or Tamoxifen? I finished chemo FEC-T Aug 2012 and have been on Tamoxifen for just over 6 months now. Had all the usual SEs of hot flushes, joint/muscle pain but recently (in the last 2 weeks) blood pressure which is normally quite low 110/70 has risen - latest was 142/86. Also a recent routine blood test by my GP showed a reduced kidney function and a follow up test ( to see if it was just a blip) was the same. My GP doesn't seem too concerned but says she'll monitor me every 6 months. I was just wondering if this had happened to anyone else on Tamoxifen or maybe as a result of Chemo?
