Finger Numb

Finger Numb

Last month or so my right pinky is numb on the outside. Haven't done anything to it but wondering if anyone knows what causes this. Did have one node yanked out on that side when had mastectomy but just started a few weeks ago. Also walking on treadmill and rowing , maybe holding to tight.

@A MyBCTeam Member: try liquid calcium - much easier to take than those god-awful horse pills 👍

I didn’t do radiation. I did a good nine months of IV chemo. They had to pull my port before I moved to Guam. Before I left my doctor put me on oral chemo. Sorry I don’t remember which one. My oncologist in Guam left me on oral chemo. So I did a total of four years of chemo. I returned stateside in October 2021. My oncologist has put me on an AI now. The chemo caused me to have neuropathy in my hands and feet. It’s weird. My hands tingle but feel like they are sleeping. My feet feel like ice all the time so I’m wear socks. My feet have the same sleeping feeling.

It may be neuropathy because I had the same thing happen to me.
