Tamoxifen Pins and Needles

I have been taking Tamoxifen for 3 years and over the last year I have been getting terrible pins and needles in my lower legs. My doc put it down to my treatment but recently wrote to my oncologist who said it wouldn’t be the tamoxifen. Am now being sent to a neurologist and am so scared it’s going to be something more sinister! Has anyone else experienced pins and needles in their legs?
