I had a bad case of shingles this summer and still have the post-shingles pain (postherpetic neuralgia). Yet as common and life-changing as it can be, shingles is frequently misdiagnosed and undertreated.
Perhaps my experience can help you. I'm not a doctor or dietitian, but maybe my findings can help cut the time you spend in googling while in pain. Only after digging around on the Internet, talking with physician friends, finding recommendations about vitamins and suppliments, and going to a pain clinic did I get the relief needed to resume my life. Resume my life?
