Hello ladies, I'm a may moonbeam and have just had my 6th Herceptin. I already had HBP and it has gone higher, enough for my onc to send me to a specialist. Also have dizzy spells but does anyone else have painful sinuses with pressure in head? Take care Sarah x
Have you had your blood pressure checked? One of the side effects of Herceptin is a change in blood pressure, either an increase or decrease. Dizzyness is a symptom of low blood pressure. My own experience is an increase in BP which has me concerned because all my life my BP has been spot on normal. I've had 13 out of 18 Herceptins and my next one is due next week, so I have seen my GP who is monitoring things and will prescribe tablets to reduce my BP until Herceptin is finished, then take me off them to see what happens.
I have 2 more to go and have been more or less ok but am now struggling with tiredness, shakiness and dizzyness. Can't wait till it's over.
I am so exausted after having no 14 of 18 herceptin treatments. I also kealed over yesterday. On the sofa - which I dont like. Day 4 tomorrow - which is usually a better day.
