Has anyone experienced numbness in the fingers after three shots of Lupron and Casodex therapy. I would like to have some feedback if this is a side effect of hormone therapy. If not it must be another ailment.

    After 1st and 2nd shot of Lupron, I experienced some numbness in my feet and toes which probably was a reaction with my type 2 diabetes. It went away after about 5 months. You can read my story at

    Have you checked your blood sugar? This is also a problem with diabetes, because I have it. meadc

    I posted an experience I had after 2 shots of Lupron earlier, I visited a older person about 76, who experienced numbness in his left hand after a number of Lupron shots and not long after suffered a mild stroke and slight paralysis of his left side. I would suggest a work up. He had surgery on an artery in his neck.
