Is this normal?

Diagnosed June 2014 mx immediate recon her2. Ax clearance.2/29 pos. Chemo and Herceptin Sept 14 followed by rads. Been on Tamoxifen since Jan 15 with all usual side effects - seemed to be reasonably ok on Wockhardt brand. For the last two weeks started tingling in affected arm/shoulder which seems to be moving up to the neck area. Also since last weds feel rubbish - I suppose I can compare it to a virus which I know that’s what it could be. No pain anywhere, no loss of appetite or weight loss. I wondered if the dark side of Tamoxifen was starting to show its face ?
