    Herceptin for Breast cancer

    Every three weeks since December I have been receiving the drug Herceptin. Since the beginning of the year, especially in the morning when waking up, sometimes during the day, I have stiff joints, especially the fingers and knees. Generally, the drug makes me tired and I also notice mood swings.

    Side effects: Mood swings; Joints stiff; Fatigue

    With the administration of the taxanes (three infusions), the infusion of Herceptin (18 doses of every three weeks) was also started. The side effects that have persisted without taxanes and Femara (after five months of continued use!) Include: tingling in the feet; the morning stiffness of the hands still occasionally, but a finger can no longer be moved properly; Arbitrary burning of the skin on approximately palm-sized areas on the legs; Forgetfulness; Lack of concentration; despite rapid fatigue, sleep and sleep disorders; listlessness; brittle, fast-breaking fingernails. Six weeks after the last dose of herceptin, the skin from the hairline inflamed almost into the groin, which was associated with intense itching and burning.
