Have you tried Noni juice? http://www.nonijuice.com/
Have you tried paraffin bath, I was thinking it could help the hand-foot thing.

Try high dose vitamin B6 for the hand-foot. Try about 400 mg a day, and take it everyday (even during weeks off 5F/U). Also the Celebrex helps a bunch too!

I have been unable to find anything about Noni juice that is not part of an advertisement of some sort - this fact alone makes me a bit skeptical.

I used Mary Kay Night Emolient cream (don't you DARE tell a soul, it will RUIN my whole macho-sailor-lifesaver image) and it worked great for hand/foot syndrome. Put it on at night after a shower/bath while your skin is still soft and then slip on a pair of socks.
