I'm now in month three of numb and tingling feet to the ankles and thumb and first two fingers on both hands. My neurologist says it will take anywhere from six to eighteen months to completely dissipate. I'm lucky in that it's sensory nerves only so I'm still able to work, wear heels, drive, etc. and am going to my first reflexology appointment in the morning. Has anyone had similar issues post-chemo? If so, what did you do to alleviate some of the symptoms?

I am now down to morning tingling and after a long day of being on my feet they feel like they are falling asleep. I took, all through chemo and continue to take, a supplement from Plexus that is supposed to help heal nerves. I can’t say for sure that it has helped but it sure seemed to help me through the chemo stage.*
