She has had episodes of numbness/tingling/cold in her feet Is this normal?

How long after taking Rituxan does joint pain continue? I did not have this kind of joint pain or hand swelling before the infusion in December 2016. Cannot make a fist with my right hand (this is the hand that the infusion went into as I have difficult veins).

I have Foliculor non-hogkins lymphoma in the left abdomen 6-7 cm, for which I am treating with Rituxan infusion but now I have swelling under my left arm, left peck, lower abdomen, inner thighs on both legs. The tumor seems to be shrinking in the last CT scan with contrast. I am also experiencing itchy burning eyes 24/7, raspy voice, blurred vision, ringing ears. I have ruled out allergies though testing with allergist and EN&T. Your thoughts? Accept what terms?
