I got shingles 11 months ago and I still have pain and a small amount of rashes on the back of my neck on my left only. I started to get the shingles rash on the left side of my face right next to my ear. It started with a pimple like with puss in it, very small. I thought it was a pimple. However, it started to get bigger and bigger. It had taken about 3 days before I realized it was something more. Not until a few days later did I go to the emergency dept at my local hospital. The doctor knew right away it was shingles.He said I waited too long before taking medication for this.
He gave me a prescription for lyrica. I went home and put some cream the doctor recommended. The cream was Cortizone. It did help somewhat. Then the following week I started to get this extreme pain that started from the back of the right side of the back of my neck that went up the back of my brain. It was a pain like I never had before and never want again. It shot of to the top of my head. It was like a Lightning bolt in my brain. That the only way I can describe it. It would be about 3 or 4 seconds of ever increasing pain that I thought would never end. I had happen to me about 7 time during a 10 day period. And then it stopped. Thank God. After that for more then 3 months the pain in my ear, left side of my jaw, behind my ear and in my skill on the left side of my head mostly behind my ear. The burning, stabbing, throbbing and iching pain was unbearable for the first 3 months. I went to a dermatologist and he gave me some more pills (Gabapentin) that I have been taking for the last 11 months. I still have pain in the back of my head behind my ear with still some pimples that when I touch them they seem to go to nerves in my skill and are very bothersome. But it does seem to be going away very slowly. I am not sure how much longer this will last. All I know is that I never want to get this again. It's the worst pain I ever had in my life. The months that I had sleepless nights, walking around my house trying to find a place to lay down without some pain is a thought that really scares me. I am retired, if I had to work I could never have gone to work for at least 5 months that's how bad it was. This is my story.

This is a update on my shingles. I still have the shingles pain every day. I have no idea when it will go away completely.
It's been one year and a half that I have been suffering. Get the shingles shot, you will not be sorry.


Hi Robert, I know how it feels like to have shingles. The pain is so unbearable. I had shingles 7 days ago. I had it on the right side of my face and it's really bad especially around the top of my eyelid and forehead. The doctor gave pain killer and antiviral. I only took that for two days, It helps but I'm always scared to take synthetic medicine because of the side effects. So I began searching on the internet on how to treat shingles naturally. I found a site that says take lysine supplement 1000-3000 mg a day and vitamin b12 1000 once or twice daily. For me i took vitamin b12 1000 sublingual twice a day. When I first took the vitamin b12 the pain was gone and now it's been 3 days no pain. I still have blisters but thank God it's now healing. Pls try eat foods that are high in lysine and avoid eating foods that are high in arginine and avoid or manage stress. Hope this helps. Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
