Shingles as well as Crps and rheumatoid arthritis


Hi all. Just found this group tonight. I have so many questions ATM. Hope u don't mind. I have had Crps for abt 10 yrs after right wrist was fused. Also diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis 8 yrs ago. Yesterday I was told I now have Shingles, right side. My concern is and any connection between Crps and shingles... I know abt the possibility of being left with nerve pain after shingles rash has gone. Does anyone have experience with this or comments/advice? I am already on prednisone, methotrexate and plaquenil for ra, lyrica and amitriptyline for Crps and now antibiotics for shingles. Also endone temporarily for the shingles pain. Appreciate anything at all. Makes it easier when u know others going thru similar things. Hope you have a restful night.
