Chemo-Induced Neuropathy Q & A

What is chemo-induced neuropathy?

Chemo-induced neuropathy is peripheral neuropathy that develops due to chemotherapy drugs. While you may need to take potentially life-saving drugs if you’re suffering from cancer, HIV, AIDS, lupus, or another serious disease, it’s important to be aware that those drugs often have severe side effects.

One of the most serious side effects from chemotherapy drugs is chemo-induced neuropathy. If you’re aware of the symptoms of chemo-induced neuropathy, you can take control of the situation and get the treatment you need as soon as symptoms appear.

What are the symptoms of chemo-induced neuropathy?

Chemo-induced neuropathy has a number of possible symptoms. These can include:

  • Numbness in your hands or feet
  • Sharp, shooting, or stabbing pain
  • Burning sensation in the hands or feet
  • Balance issues
  • Muscle weakness

If you have chemo-induced neuropathy, your symptoms may start gradually and then increase in intensity as you progress through your treatment.

Will chemo-induced neuropathy go away on its own?

In some cases, the symptoms of chemo-induced neuropathy will recede on their own, but it usually takes months or years after treatment for this to happen — if it happens at all. In most cases, chemo-induced neuropathy is a problem that lingers long after your chemotherapy is over.

Nerve damage like that caused by neuropathy doesn't often go away by itself. Regenerating nerves quickly and efficiently requires powerful techniques like the cutting-edge treatments at St. Rose Integrative Medicine. If you want to feel like yourself again, you need state-of-the-art techniques and tools. That’s exactly what St. Rose Integrative Medicine offers you.

What is the treatment for chemo-induced neuropathy?
