Postherpetic Neuralgia, well its 6 months now that I have been suffering from this I tried to make my Christmas a happy one with my grandson and new grand daughter, but I cannot remember what it was like to "Be NORMAL" My granddaughter wanted to stand on my lap and jump, I tried to hold her but the pain was making my enjoyment not so good, I had to give in and askmy very proud son to hold her, and of cause it reduced me to tears. WHY cant there be a medication that can stop this sort of pain. at the moment along with my arthritas medications I am now on a transdermic patch of 125, amitriptyline 50 mg at night, and 900mg x 3 gaberpentin and every 4 hours I take 12mg og Oxy Norm., and the pain is still there.. Now I have found out that my shoulder rotary cuff area has ripped and the fluid inbetween the bones is no longer there and I require a major operation ... What else can be thrown at me, will I be able to work if I have the shoulder operation, will I be able to control my shoulder pain and the shingles pain. Is there any one out there I can talk to, has any one out there been in a simular situation???
Im thinking about setting up a group for all us Postherpetic Neuralgia sufferers we all think we are alone, but just by reading mail from so many people proves we are not alone.
What do you think???
