I started NTM treatment with the "big 3" but had to stop the Ethambutol in the first month because my hands and feet started getting numb. I understand the damage is often temporary, but after 30+ days off the Ethambutol, they haven't gotten better. It's not painful, just annoying and uncomfortable. For example, when my hands get cold now, I get a burning sensation.
Has anyone else experience this and did the sensations go back to normal after some time off the Ethambutol? How long did it take?
