BCG Side Effects

5 years 10 months ago - 5 years 10 months ago #47746 by Kitten
Had six BCG treatments, a couple weeks after last treatment, I started experiencing tingling in my hands by day and numbness and tingling in my fingers by night. Also at night and most important, I started to experience severe burning and sharp pain in my left hand. I am left handed. After putting up with it for about a week, I went to see my GP. He believes it is a side-effect of the BCG. Put me on low dose Elavil, we've had to up the dose over a couple weeks because the meds don't work after a couple days. Anyone else experiencing similar nighttime issues?
