From this study (8 months ago):
Tingling and numbness in toes only and not severe. Started taking Revlimid on July 7, 2011, except for 10 weeks from 2-21-12 thru 5-1-12.
Severe diarrhea has now occurred for about two years with no let up. I average about four times a day, starting in the AM. It usually tapers off after 2:00 PM, but not always. Many times it'll continue after dinner. I've even had it during the night. I have another appointment with a gastro next week.
