Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy
Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy is peripheral neuropathy that is caused from the drugs and chemotherapy to treat cancer, which damage the peripheral nerves in the process. This condition is a very troubling side-effect of chemotherapy, as the body is already sensitive to pain, and it can cause the patient further pain. The symptoms for CIPN all depend on the peripheral nerves that were damaged during chemotherapy treatment. Some of the other symptoms for Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy include: tingling, numbness, vertigo, limited extremity usage, muscle weakness, sensitivity to cold and heat, blood pressure changes, and irregular urination patterns.
