I had Shingles on my right chest that did a arcing rash from the middle front to middle back on the right side of my torso. I had the rash and it was extremely painful. The rash and pain went away in about 2 months, but ever since I've been dealing with nerve pain on the opposite side of my chest. I feel it the mostly going to bed and waking up in the morning. I've had heart arrhythmia issues a few times also. I've been checked top to bottom for heart issues and i'm all clear, so there's no worries with that. I think my chest nerves got all screwed up with the Shingles disease and continue to have problems. The pain a dull ache that seems to be worse on some days. I'm sick to death of taking meds and don't want to take them anymore. I've tried Cumbalta, Lyrica, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, etc.... they all have side effects that I find worse than having the neuralgia.
Has anyone else with Shingles had similar PHN issues?
