I just started experiencing L'hermitte Sympton. It is a strange sensation, but not really uncomfortable. Does it get more intense as time passes? I’m about 2 months post treatment.

I'm 10 months post treatment and I haven't noticed any change. It's a side effect that I can live with since it does not involve any pain :-)

No, it didn't increase in intensity over time. My period of time lasted about a month or two. I remember nodding my head up and down.....up and down....to get that weird sensation. I think that might of helped to rid of it, cause after being out of treatment for 14 months, it's totally gone. Now if I could get rid of Neuropathy that easily.

Like CajunEagle, I'm nearly 14 months post treatment. Mine started at about 3 months an occasionally I can still get a mild sensation.

It never really increased and eventually lessened to nearly nothing now.

Mine has almost gone. Some days it does reappear but mildly and then goes again, alway reducing in frequency and intensity. No big deal.

But now it's gone.
It never bothered me: In fact, I found it kind of intriguing. Just lower my chin to my chest and, voila! A mild electric shock goes all the way down to my feet. Magic!
