Has anyone been troubled with CTS. I have had numbness in my hands and fingers for a couple of months and assumed it was chemo induced neuropathy. However, recently I was at a neurologist with my mom and he said it was carpal tunnel. After reading up on this it sounds right on. This can be induced by excess growth hormone production and hormonal changes. Since I have not been taking HRT anymore even though I am ER neg maybe this is related. Does anyone think weekly doses of Procrit could be an influence? If it was neuropathy my toes would also be involved the neurologist said. Love to hear what you guys know about this subject. Not being able to sleep well at night because of the numbness is driving me nuts. It is typical for this to be worse at night. I haven't been on the PC in a week with no change and I don't do alot of repetitive wrist motion.
