Re: PHN Pain = Depressing

I'm so sorry your pain is getting worse. My pain did get better over time but it took about six months for me to really feel better. I hope you heal quickly.

Hi HarleyNana. :wave:

If the rash is coming back, get to your doctor and take the antiviral med again. When I did that the second time it stopped it from getting worse.

Re: Shingles timeline for pain and tiredness?

No problem. Maybe if you called your doctor's office and told them what happened, they would phone it in for you? Or look online -- there are over the counter versions. Cream or ointment.

Re: Shingles timeline for pain and tiredness?

I know it can drag out. Did your doctor mention Lidocaine to you? I used it and rubbed it into my skin where the pain was -- after the blisters had healed. It worked really well on my nerve pain.
