About half way through mmy radiation treatment, I woke up one morning and both arms were tingling and numb like they were asleep. This tingling and numbness has spread to the rest of my body. I have been to 3 neurlogists and none of them have been able to offer any help. Has anyone else had this experience?

    Dear Tonselcan, My doctors told me about the possibility of numbness in finger tips and toes, but not the entire body.
    I myself have had momentary numbness from my waist to my toes and also in my right hand, but it only last a split second. My oncologist has suggested seeing a neurologist, but I have not seen one yet. Since being diagnosed I have tried to learn as much as I can about cancer and its treatment and will forward any info should I find some.
    Good luck, Steve
