I had my first chemotherapy treatment for Breast Cancer. It was followed by an injection of this drug the next day. About 6 hours after the injection, I began an intense 6-7 day migraine.

4 days after my shot I had EXCRUTIATING lower back. I associated it with my Herpes. Dr didn't think so. Second shot I had similar pain but it moved up my back and to my sternum.
