      Is it pins and needles? Might not hurt to make an appointment with the radiation oncologist and/or a neurologist to see if it's nerve radiation induced nerve damage.

      I had 6 internal radiation. About a couple of weeks or so afterward, I started feeling tingling in my feet and it travels all the way up my leg. I have it in my hands too. The feet are the worse. From what Ive read on the net, it's a side effect that you cant do anything about. It might go away after a while or it might not. I did experience weakness in my arms. I think that one can be blamed on the chemo.
