Hi Randy,

I am colon cancer survivor, so I can't address your specifice question. I am sorry you are having these side effects. You might try searching for "tingling and loss of fine motor skills" in the search bar and see if someone has written about similar conditions in earlier posts.

Wishing you well.

Hugs,

Kay

Hi Randy,
I got tingling in my fingers. This was caused by the chemo medicine vincristine. I am happy to say that since I no longer have to take chemo, the tingling has gone away completely. You did not say weather you are having chemo.

hi i havn't any tingling in my fingers or legs, but i have numbness in my fingers since my third round of Chemo. It still been with me even though my doctor lower the dose of the medicine that causes it. I sometime have muscule spasams in my legs and in my feet. So don't feel alone about your side effects.I aslo have Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, you can also join me and others in the chat room to ask questions and hear what others are going through.:)

I also had the tingling in the fingers and toes. After the 3rd round I had lost pretty much most of my reflexes in my legs so my doc cut out the vincristine for the last 2 treatments. I did have leg and foot cramps that about drove me nuts for awhile, it is much better now. These side effects started getting much better a couple months after I finished chemo. Hang in there, it gets better. Come to chat sometime soon.

Yup! Fingers and toes...they told me it's called Raynaud's and probably a result of some of the chemo drugs I endured. It's diminished, but still flares up if I go from a warm to a cold environment.

Randy: This has just recently started in me, too. My oncologist is treating it as a possible pinched nerve. I'm having an MRI on Monday to make sure. It might be something your doctor may want to check out.
