Herceptin Headaches

All - just wondered if anyone had any advice. I had my 11th Herceptin on Thurs (had last 4 by subcut injection) and I’ve been laid up since with the most horrific headache across the left side of my head and face. I suffer normally with migraines but my Imigran spray has not touched it. I know headaches can be quite common with Herceptin but I’m just wondering if anyone has been prescribed anything that has helped clear the pain? I’ve tried all the usual stuff inc cocodamol, ibuprofen, Diclofenac etc but nothing is touching it. Any advice appreciated.
