Has anyone developed severe nerve pain after a bout with shingles? It is in the same area as the PMR girdle pain but is much more intense and does not seem to be affected by prednisone. I am bent over like an ape and have to crawl up the stairs, it does not have the same feel as the pain I had when I was in the thick of a Shingles episode but my rash still itches although the pain has moved to another area. I had stopped the gabapentin and am now back on it as well as duloxetine. Just wondered if anyone else has had this experience. Thanks
