Re: Pain after Shingles
going back onto the neurontin,if it actually did work for you really would be a good idea.the pain from shingles,i know can be very overwhelming at times.it is neuropathic in nature and really makes treating it difficult at best.one really helpful thing that i use for my neuropathic central pain syndrome is lidocaine patches and ointment for the areas where i cannot place the patches.these patches were actually invented by a man who was some sort of pharmacist or researcher for his wife just to try and treat her shingles pain.they really work well in numbing the worst of the worst areas for me.these should really work well for your particular type of pain.that ointment is a big help to.you just rub that into the skin.just make certain you don;t try and use both together on the very same spots or the patch will not stick.the ointment just is a bit oily or greasy in nature,nothing would ever stick to the skin there with this stuff on it.just ask your doc for an Rx for this stuff and see how it goes.hopefully this will remit soon for you.let me know how things are going,K?Marcia
