I have had neuropathy in my hands and feet since my Docetaxel treatment that has at times been almost unbearable. I've been given gabapentin and Cymbalta and neither was any help for me. Now I'm on tiZANidine and it is actually helping me. I take it at night before bed. Before tiZANidine I could hardly sleep as my feet would burn and hurt.
I still struggle with neuropathy in hands and feet but it's not as bad. Not sure it will ever go away but the way I look at it....many things have changed for good and will never be the same.
I lost my taste which eventually came back and I did suck ice chips from start to finish. Did not do the ice packs on hands and feet. When I mentioned it to my nurse the first infusion she pretty much played it off. If I ever have to do it again you can be sure that I will be taking my cooler full of ice with me!
