I am a newly diagnosed LBCNHL who just started R-CHOP this past Monday. My tumors are wide-spread, including abdomen (very large) and throat, mid-chest, liver. Amazingly, I had no severe systemic symptoms and was diagnosed only when a large lump appeared in my throat.
Here's my question, just having started chemo, I am feeling repeated muscle spasms in my upper body and my throat. These are involuntary twitches that can go on for a long time. Sitting here early AM they have started up since daybreak.
My psychological problem with it is that I associate these tremors with acute nausea and vomiting (because of an incident while driving before that lump was removed from my throat). So they scare me a little.
The other thing that bothers me is that now, after I've started chemo, I am developing night sweats. Odd.
So, if anyone has some similar experiences, please let me know.
