      Have you been checked for lymphedema? I have gone through therapy for lymphedema and do exercises on a daily basis to prevent it. I also have a sleeve I wear if I started to feel pressure or tingling in my arm or if I fly. I’ve been fatigued since I finished treatment 4 years ago. I agree you need to call your onco or pc doctor. If it’s lymphedema you want to address it right away. Hope you feel better soon.

      Ally, are you having any treatments? The tingling in the arms and legs sounds like neuropathy I suggest you see a neurologist. Neuropathy is often an side/aftereffect of chemo and/or radiation.
      I have CP&F I am seeing a pain management specialist and a neurologist. My neurologist determined that I have neuropathy caused be chemotherapy. But I also have Fibromyalgia which I have had a mild case since childhood when it was triggered by Brucellosis. Cancer just kicked it into high gear. You can manage the pain and the fatigue with medication and diet. Talk to your PCP about referrals to a neurologist and a pain management specialist. Also research foods that help you over come fatigue and pain
