Had shingles about two months ago. Now I've been diagnosed with Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN) and I'm trying to adjust to the meds. The pain is minor but I wonder what will happen if I am taken off. Will the pain come right back? I couldn't even sleep before. I don't want to feel that way again. Any one else here have PHN? I'm just 31 and most people my age have no idea what I'm talking about. I feel so isolated.
