I have had this pain in my back and on my side from Post herpectic Neuralgia for almost 5 years. I have been to several pain management doctors. They hav egiven me many pain medicines which if they are working I don't know how I could stand the pain without them. I also have a neuro stimulator implanted which did remove the burning pain sensation I had. I have also had several types of creams to put on the affected area. None of them helped. I am seriously thinking of having the nerve path severed but need more information about the potential bad effects. The pain does not affect my sleeping, but it has made me house bound, since any movement causes it to flare up. Just holding the telephone increases the pain level.View Thread
I am a victim of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome-Type II, a rare neurological disorer with postherpetic neuralic complication. I would appreciate any information you might provide that would help to improve the quality of life, as my neuralgia has proven to be a life altering experience. Feel free to email or text me with any input you feel is relevant.
2 weeks ago my fiance started having headaches that wouldn't go away, he had them morning and night. A week later he developed a rash on his scalp that started to go down his forehead and by his eye. Took him to the ER and they said he has shingles. They checked his eye and said it was OK at that time. Now he says it's blurry in that eye, and his headaches are still really bad. Was wondering how long the headaches will last. He says there really bad. View Thread
Hi all, I am a strange case. I am 24 (23 at time of diagnosis) and had shingles in December of 2009. I am still having PHN in July-severe, horrible pain in my face. My shingles were on my shoulder, and thanks to neural recruitment the pain spread up my neck, into my collarbone, and up into my face. It then crossed the midline and is now mainly on my right side of my face. I've tried Lyrica, Topamax, Neurontin...the list goes on. Has anyone tried neurofencine? Or any other suggestions... I'm at the end of my rope! Thank you!View Thread
Really, that sounds like an awful place to get it, I have it above my right hip. It does sound like phn the nerve pain. Are you taking any meds? I take gabapentin and that seems to cause more memory prolems for me but a lot of meds can cause memory loss, even stressView Thread

I just posted a discussion about shingles in my inner ear 2 years ago and its after effects and forgot to ask if anyone that had shingles/Bells Palsy has twitching that occurs? I involuntarily twitch, even after 2 years, on the side that was infested with shingles. Just wondering. Thanks.View Thread
