I am 38 years old women and have had reoccurring shingles on my left arm for 10 months. I have excruciating pain in my hand, thumb & 1st finger. I have tried gabapetin (max dose)with tramadol and paracetamol for 3 months but still in pain. I am now taking tramadol & paracetamol & ibruprofen with pregabalin & sertaline (antidepressant) for 4 months but I am still in so much pain. It has consumed my life and feel it's never ending.. I have paid to see a pain management consultant because it's a 12 month waiting list onNHS. They say it's AHN and want to change pregablin to carbamazepine & antidepressants to amtriptaline. I am so confused drowsy and in pain.. please can anyone help!
I am 53, female with MS. I have had shingles down my right arm and up into my shoulder and neck. I have been given anti viral tablets, pregablin for the pain and a useless visit to a neuro physiotherapist. I can't lift my arm or use my hand for anything. I have had shingles now for 6 weeks and feel frustrated and worried. Can anyone help?
