The American Cancer Society mentions these sensations that indicate possible neuropathy:
- Tingling, or a “pins and needles” feeling.
- A burning or warm feeling.
- Numbness, weakness, discomfort or pain.
- Less ability to feel hot and cold.
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral nerve damage can cause significant pain and can affect your ability to walk, write, button your shirt or pick up things, the society says. It can last for weeks, months or even years after treatment.
