Well, as such numbness in feet and legs with lower back pain, is not related with side effect from Chemotherapy.

This can be due to some other issue.

These symptoms can be due to neuropathy or other nerve diseases.
It can occur due to diabetes ,thyroid disorders, vitamin deficiency, low calcium or electrolyte abnormalities.
This may also occur due to pinched nerve in spine, and may be affected by posture in sleep. Pressure on the spinal nerves, or pressure on Peripheral nerves can cause numbness in legs after waking up in morning.

You will be requiring few tests for exact diagnosis. These are-

-Complete blood count
-Electrolyte level
-Thyroid function tests
-Measurement of vitamin levels
-Blood sugar tests.
Also Electromyography test and MRI of spine may be considered.
You should take plenty of vegetables, fruits, water and electrolyte solutions.

Also you should take vitamin B complex supplements.
I advise you to see your doctor, for evaluation and get it managed.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
