I am new to the discussion group. I recently started chemotherapy with taxol and herceptin and have just completed the second round with taxol. I have noticed that in addition to numbness of the fingers and toes that my lips and the tip of my tongue are also numb. Has anyone else noticed this? Am I going crazy? Also, how does one manage the pain associated with taxol? The doctor has prescribed Vioxx but I was allergic to that and had to stop taking it, and now ibuprofen 3 x 800 mg each day. Neither of these dealt adequately with the pain. Does anyone else have any solutions?
