Question - Sunday, October 20, 2013 10:55 AM
I have been having tingling and numbness in my hand recently. My primary care thinks it is carpal tunnel but is sending me for an X-ray just to make sure. My question is could it be related to the surgery or radiation? I have noticed that my armpit is numb when I put deo. on. My primary care said that I have some Lymphedema in my arm but he does not think that is what is causing the problems. He said my arm would have to be more more swollen to cause nerve problems. I am going to see a Lymphedema specialist this week to get it checked out. I am so frustrated by all of this. It seems to be never ending!!
