Shingles + Burning

My mom has been suffering from this odd burning that's been going throughout her body... She was diagnosed w/Shingles before, they come and go, depending on her stress level... but they were definitely out last night.

She's been going through tests, no one knows what is wrong w/her. She has NO pain, just this intense burning which is now spreading further throughout her body.

Anyone know if this type of burning could be shingles?

Re: Shingles + Burning

Shingles can cause burning pain, and it can persist after the shingles clear up.

Nerve medicines such as Lyrica might be helpful.
