Question: Can occasional oxycodone use cause numbness and tingling in hands?

3 or 4 years after my treatment for throat cancer (surgery, radiation) I began to experience increased numbness and eventual tingling in both my hands, radiating usually up into my forearms and sometimes to the shoulders. Nerve conduction tests and a cervical MRI show no nerve damage or carpal tunnel. I've been diagnosed with borderline Raynaud's Phenomenon, emphasis on borderline and it is not the more serious Raynaud's Disease, which I've had for a few years and which gives me cold hands in cooler weather. But this sensation is constant.



I'm currently tapering off 1 mg Ativan per day as I thought this might be a cause and also due to my having acquired the daily habit (vs. occasional use) not long before this condition began. I'm also suspecting the Lipitor, but I've been on it for years, at least 15. So unless it's a sudden onset due to accumulation I don't think it's the Lipitor.



Once or twice a week I still take 5 mg of Oxycodone when the pain from my radiation treatments flares up. It helps, but if others feel that this could be causing the hand conditions I'll stop it immediately.



All replies gratefully accepted.
