Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

We cannot advise whether you continue with a prescription medication or not - that is something you need to discuss with your prescribing doctor.

Unfortunately, chemo can cause neuropathy that in turn, causes side effects such as numbness, tingling, burning sensations, sharp pains and pins and needles. While cold feet are not a common side effects, feet that are normal to the touch but produce a sensation of being cold can happen with neuropathy. You will need to discuss this with your doctor. I hope you can find a treatment plan.
