I just had my first treatment 10 days ago. Within two days of of the treatment I began to get horrible pain in my mouth (no sores) which then spread to my jaw and my ears. The doctor said it is nerve pain from the Vinblastine, and gave my Neuroptin to counteract it. That medicine put my in such a fog, I wasn't able to walk in a straight line, so she said to discontinue it. Luckily that pain eased up around 5 days after treatment, but now I have horrible pain in the arm I received my injection. It gets so bad that it wakes me up and keeps me up at night. All she can offer is more Percocet. Prior to the Hodgkin's, I took no daily medicine, so now I am overwhelmed with the amount of medicine I am needing to consume. Has anyone else experienced pain in the arm they received the IV and did you find any way to control the paid without additional medication? Thank you!
