Hello, I just wanted to find some other people with the same issues I've been suffering with for around 3 years now. I suffered with Ramsey Hunts Syndrome and then got shingles in my back a year later. Since then I have suffered with postherpetic neuralgia and I have been on multiple medications and none seem to make it easier. I cannot do daily tasks and I have missed a lot of work.
I am starting to feel quite blue about it all and just want to feel I am not so alone in how I feel. I have the support of my family, friends and partner, but it's hard for anyone to understand how much this can get me down. I feel as if the pain is winning and beating me, I am no longer sleeping well because of the pain and I am waiting for a doctors appointment. What do other people do? How do you cope? How do you carry on?
