Anybody else experience this with CML and/or TKI? I'm sure this too will soon pass and may or may not return at a future date.
burning palms, soles of feet, and sore tongue- anyone else?

Lots of us have had the sore tongue - I'm surprised no one's posted. Actually, it's more like tongue sores.
Dx July 2009 on routine physical. WBC 94. Started Gleevec 400 mg Sept 2009. MMR at 2yrs. Side effects (malaise, depression/anxiety, fatigue, nausea, periorbital edema) never improved. Kidney issues developed because of Gleevec. Switched to Sprycel 70 mg in Aug 2011. Above side effects disappeared or improved. Have been MR3.5 - 4.5 ever since. Two untreated pleural effusions followed by one treated by stopping Sprycel Jan 2017. After 9 weeks, PCR showed loss of MMR; re-started Sprycel at 50 mg and in 3 months was back to <0.01% IS. Pleural effusion returned within a couple of months, same as before (moderate, left side only). Stopped Sprycel 50 mg for 12 weeks; pleural effusion resolved. At about a monthoff the drug, PCR was 0.03; at 11 weeks it was 2.06 - lost CCyR? Have returned to 50 mg Sprycel for 3 weeks, intending to reduce to 20 mg going forward.

Trey knows more about this, I think it's NSAID....not sure, but if you're taking meds for high blood pressure, and they're diuretics you might want to stop for awhile and see if that helps.

It just seems it is one thing right after another. thankfully, things come and go.
