Hi I am having radiation treatment for tonsil cancer, I noticed I am getting muscle spasms down my arms to my fingers, is this a common side effect.
Hi Aladdin insane
It's not something I'm familiar with and I don't remember anyone else mentioning it.
I would definitely discuss this with the radiotherapy team when you're there and do let us know what they say.
Good luck with your continued treatment.
Hi, I did ask the team and they think it could be my anti sickness liquid, since stopping it I’ve no longer had the jerks in my arm and fingers. So hopefully they can prescribe one that will suit, as I do feel sick with the treatment.
thank you for responding
