I have tingling and numbness in my fingers at night and it prevents a restful nights sleep. Does anyone have the same problem? I finished with all BC treatment two months ago.

    Sounds like neuropathy which can affect you long after treatment is over. I believe your oncologist can prescribe something to help. Check it out.

      They will probably prescribe neurontin. You can look it up on the internet.

    I have and had neuropathy before my BC dx. It is not pleasant. Talk to your dr about giving you Neurontin. Good luck!

      I didn't, that is why I quit taking it. I cannot tell any difference with it so now I don't take anything but Advil for pain.

    I had neuropathy really badly when I went thru chemo almost five years ago. I tried acupuncture with excellent success and no nasty side effects like you get from the neuropathy drugs.

      Was your neuropathy in arms & hands? I had it in my feet during treatment but hands & arms started two months out. Wondering if acupuncture will help me.

    I went to PT and she actually thought some of it was due to the surgery and the stiffness and tightness in my shoulder and muscles under my arm. I was able to get most of it taken care of through exercise and stretching.
