Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 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.
