Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
The tremors/shakiness are intermittent. It is possible I could have had a constant shingles outbreak for over 7 yrs now due to my severely suppressed immune system. It takes me several weeks to be able to recover from these symptoms once treatment is stopped. However, I'm not sure if there will be irreparable damage to my kidneys at this point.
From this study (2 months ago):
Recurrent shingles for last 1-2 years with them now coming almost as soon as I am off the 7 days 3000 gram course. Two weeks ago during the 5th day of the 3000 per day, I awoke and the muscles of my lower extremities were so tight and rigid I could hardly bend to move. Painful to get around, could bend. Joints stiff, but it the muscles, WOWEE.. took 5 days to gradually go away. During this, I had gone to 500 2x a day of Valtrex and the shingles were back in 3 days. Nose gets stuffy, extreme itch that 3 benadryl can't touch, and of course tingle and burn. Always in my hair, forehead and sometimes on bridge of nose. I had to start another round of 3000 gram/day. Today is my last day of one week of 500 2x day, and will go to 500 1x day. I itch, tingle, sore, ache and have a few bumps but nothing that has actually popped out YET. This weekend we will see. I have been doing this since 2013.
They started out every couple months, now perpetual.
From this study (3 months ago):
My WBC count was 15.6 last week before taking Valtrex, now after finding many cherry angiomas since starting the Valtrex I was taken off the medicine and had more blood tests run. Now my WBC count is 16.1 after being on the medicine for almost a week.
